The Bunnell City Commission appoints members of the community to boards and committees to act as decision makers and advisors on a wide variety of topics and projects. All City of Bunnell boards and committees serve at the pleasure of the City Commission. Each appointed body has a specific scope of authority as provided by the City Code of Ordinances and/or State Statutes or Federal Law. Boards and Committees may have administrative, managerial, quasi-judicial, investigatory, and/or advisory powers dependent upon the enabling legislation. They are not responsible for day-to-day operations of departments, operating policies of departments or the business decisions of the local government, nor do they set policy, such as require the enactment of an ordinance, but rather act as a collective citizen sounding board or committee in the policy process.
Boards and committees are an integral part of citizen participation in local government. They are an important asset to the City for proper growth, development and long term stability.
The City of Bunnell will advertise vacancies on boards and committees as the need arises. If interested in applying for a vacant board/committee position, please complete and return a Volunteer Advisory Board and Committee Application to the office of the City Clerk.
