It is the desire and intent of City Council to encourage and support citizen participation in an advisory capacity governing the affairs of the City.
The City of Shavano Park offers many ways for its citizens to become actively involved in their community. Attending public meetings is one way and the other is to serve on one of the boards or commissions.
All board and commission applicants are appointed by the City Council. Appointments are generally held annually, although other appointments may be scheduled when openings arise.
Any resident over the age of 18 that is a registered voter may be a member on these boards/commissions. Members serve without monetary compensation and are appointed by the Mayor and/or City Council as required by the rules of appointment for each Board/Commission. Members must take an oath of office and serve in the interest of the Shavano Park community. As a member of a Board/Commission, those who serve are subject to the standards of ethical conduct contained in the City of Shavano Park Code of Ethics and all requirements under the Texas Local Government Code.
If you are a resident of Shavano Park and would like to get more involved in your great community, you can do so by volunteering to serve on one of the Boards/Commissions. Shavano Park has many ways you can serve.
Applications are available at City Hall. If you need assistance of have any questions, please call the City Secretary at 493-3478.
