The Wayzata City Council annually appoints individuals to volunteer service positions on advisory commission, authority and boards through an open appointments process. Each commission, authority or board deals with a variety of issues and topics of concern to the city.

The appointment process promotes citizen involvement through volunteer service. The process allows City Council Members an opportunity to tap into and select from the broad base of talent, diversity, knowledge and skills of its citizens to benefit city government. The process offers all interested citizens an opportunity to be considered for appointments based on their expertise. Openings on commission, authority and boards are staggered and vary on term length.

We encourage you to research the various advisory boards and their meeting schedules to determine what time commitment is involved for board members. Typically, advisory boards meet bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually, and the meetings are open to the public. Attending one of the meetings may assist you in learning more about an advisory board's function. You may view the online calendar for meeting dates or call the City Hall, at 952-404-5303, to obtain meeting information. Details on regularity of meetings are detailed on the Application form.
