Once received, your application will remain in the active files for two years. The City Council Subcommittee on Policy and Appointments was formed for the purpose of providing for a small group review of "on-file" applications. Appointments are made whenever there is a need to fill a vacancy. The Subcommittee’s recommendations for appointment are forwarded to the Council as a whole for official appointment. Appointments are made at one of the City’s evening Council meetings, and the proposed appointees are notified in sufficient time so that they may arrange to attend and receive their Certificate of Appointment in person if they so desire.
