The City of Carrollton is now accepting applications for the 2017 Boards & Commissions appointments in October. Residents are encouraged to get involved in the areas of community life that mean the most to them. City government depends on residents who volunteer their time and expertise to participate in public service as members of boards, commissions, and committees. By lending a more diverse viewpoint for City Council to consider, their actions help shape and influence public policy. Citizen involvement is important to setting the direction for Carrollton’s future. Applications will be accepted until Friday, September 15 at 11:30 a.m. For more information or to fill out an application, visit cityofcarrollton.com/boards or call 972-466-3005.
