You may at any time write a letter to the Mayor requesting to be considered for a position with any committee.
Run for mayor or council? Municipal elections are every 2 years on even numbered years.

Apply for a job? Positions do become vacant from time to time. The City has a policy to accept applications only when jobs become available. Every job opening is posted in the local newspapers a minimum of 10 days prior to the closing date. Every position is ranked based upon the job description, with the best qualified applicants being interviewed. Job postings when they do come up will be posted on this site.
