Midlothian City Council Accepting Applications

The City Council will be accepting applications for expiring terms on all boards and commissions this fall. New appointments will be made in December with terms beginning on January 1, 2021. Residents who want to get involved on a board or commission are invited to apply.

Applicants are not guaranteed an appointment, but all applications will be considered equally based on objective criteria, such as being a resident of the city for at least six months, a qualified voter, and previous volunteer leadership experience. Most boards and commissions meet monthly, so it is important that applicants understand the time commitment involved because regular attendance is expected.
