Board and commission members have an important role in assisting the City Council in fulfilling its obligations to the citizens of Farmers Branch, as well as helping maintain the high quality of life enjoyed by the City's residents.
As a member of one of the City's appointed boards or commissions, residents will focus on community needs that require understanding, dedication and vision.
Participation on a board or commission provides an opportunity to become aware of the operating policies and challenges of municipal government. It gives citizens an opportunity to play a vital role in the communication process between citizens and elected officials. However, the City Council has the ultimate political and legal responsibility for conducting local government for the welfare of the entire community.
To request an application and handbook for board and commission service, please contact the City Secretary, at 972.919.2503. Or you may download the application and handbook below.
