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.
