Board & Commission Service
Members of City boards and commissions are required to be legal residents of the City of Huber Heights for at least one year and must be a registered voter at a City residence. A person may only serve on one board or commission at a time. All members of City boards and commissions serve without compensation in a volunteer capacity. The City Manager (or designee) is a non-voting ex-officio member of each City board or commission (except the Personnel Appeals Board). For other specific eligibility requirements, please refer to the City Charter or originating ordinance or resolution for a particular board or commission (view City Codes).
When a vacancy or vacancies exist on a City board or commission, the Clerk of Council will post a notice on the City website and at the City Hall Building at:
City of Huber Heights Government Center
6131 Taylorsville Road
Huber Heights, Ohio 45424
Applications & Interviews
The Clerk of Council will also provide notice of a vacancy or vacancies on a City board or commission to local media outlets. These notices to fill vacancies will include a deadline for submission of an Application for City Boards and Commissions by interested individuals. The Clerk of Council will organize all of the applications received by the deadline and provide these to the City Council/City Staff interview panel for review. The City Council may choose to interview individuals who make application for appointment to City boards and commissions through a Council Work Session, though the City Council is not required to interview any or all of the applicants. The City Council may also designate a City Council/City Staff interview panel coordinated by the Clerk of Council to interview individuals who make application for appointment to City boards and commissions on behalf of the City Council.
Screening & Appointments
Once the City Council has determined an individual is appropriate for appointment to a City board or commission, the Clerk of Council will contact the applicant and request that the applicant sign and submit a Grant of Authority to Release Personal Information. The Clerk of Council will submit the signed release from the applicant to the Human Resources Department for processing to obtain a criminal background and driving check. The Human Resources Department will also conduct three reference checks on the applicant. If the criminal background and driving check and the reference checks are approved by the Human Resources Department, the Clerk of Council will make the necessary arrangements to place consideration of the appointment of the applicant to the appropriate City board or commission on the agenda at the next regularly scheduled Council Work Session. If the City Council recommends the appointment of the applicant to the appropriate City board or commission, the Clerk of Council will make the necessary arrangements to place a motion for the appointment of the applicant to the appropriate City board or commission at the next regularly scheduled City Council Meeting.
Once the motion for appointment of the applicant to the appropriate City board or commission is passed at a City Council Meeting, the Clerk of Council will send a letter of appointment signed by the Mayor to the appointee/applicant.
