Clawson Boards & Commissions

The City of Clawson is successful because of the tremendous support from residents who voluntarily serve on various city boards and commissions.  Board and commission members support city operations by supporting department initiatives, advising city officials on important matters and serving as ambassadors in their respective neighborhoods. 

Residents who are interested in serving on a board or commission should note the following:

  • Appointments are considered as vacancies open up. Terms generally expire near the end of the year, but this can be variable. Check each page to see when current terms expire. 
  • Most boards and commissions work with specific departments as described in the City Charter.
  • To be considered, potential applicants must submit a completed Board & Commission application to the City Clerk’s Office.
  • In general, board and commission members are appointed by the Mayor and City Council at a meeting of City Council, and not compensated for their time.
  • Appointed members are required to comply with the Open Meetings Act and Freedom of Information Act requests related to board activities and duties.

Please explore the menu on the left-hand side of this page to learn more about each board and commission. In addition, job descriptions for each board and committee can be found here!

We currently have openings on the Traffic & Safety Board as well as accepting applications for all other boards as openings might occur throughout the year(s) - if you have time please fill out the application to Volunteer!
