A full listing of the City's advisory bodies follows.  Many of them have opportunities for appointing members of the public.  Appointment to such a body, regardless of its formal designation, is both an honor and a heavy responsibility.

Notwithstanding the self-discipline required in public service, each Board, Commission or Committee member may take considerable pride in being an integral part of the process which contributes to the sound government of this City, and for this service the City Council is most appreciative.

If you are interested or would like further information, please contact the City Clerk.  You may download, print and complete this application form, or you may pick one up at the City Clerk's Office.

Please keep in mind that all appointments require meeting attendance and most require Santee residency.  

ALL BOARDS, COMMISSIONS AND COMMITTEES ARE SUBJECT TO THE REGULATIONS OF THE RALPH M. BROWN ACT. FOR FURTHER DETAILS SEE THE CITY CLERK.
