Boards and Commissions

Volunteer members of City Boards, Commissions, and Committees are appointed by City Council to advise the Council and City Management on a variety of issues. The City of Longview has a number of various Boards, Commissions and Committees. In addition to these, City Council may, from time to time, appoint short-term committees for special purposes.

Many of the City of Longview's various Boards, Commissions and Committees have residency and other special requirements. For most boards, it is City Council's policy to appoint persons to a maximum of 3 consecutive 2-year terms. Appointments are made annually in June. Board, Commission and Committee members are required to attend regularly scheduled meetings. Poor attendance could be reason for Council to remove a member from office.

Residents are encouraged to apply to serve on a board or commission. Please apply by June 1. Appointments are generally made at the second council meeting in June. For more information, please contact the City Manager's Office at 903-237-1021.
