We Need You!


The Town has established 7 committees by resolution of Council. Interested citizens who live within the Town of Atherton are encouraged to submit applications for positions on committees

Term expiration dates end on June 30 each year. Appointed committee members serve no more than two full consecutive terms on the committee to which they are appointed. However, a member may be reappointed to the committee following a minimum two (2) year hiatus. However, if a seat is vacant and no one applies, City Council may grant an exemption.
 
The Town of Atherton invites dedicated volunteers to submit an application for the following committee vacancies: (Deadline to submit applications is May 15, 2015)

Audit/Finance Committee - 2 vacancies - the 2 members whose terms are set to expire have served to consecutive terms and therefore are ineligible for reappointment unless no one else applies.
