The Mayor and City Council invite qualified residents from the City to submit applications to fill the temporary Finance Ad Hoc Committee (Committee). The Committee will be comprised of two Councilmembers, two Finance Commissioners and up to three residents to work with staff on operational matters in the Finance Department. This Committee is anticipated to be an “ad hoc,” temporary committee which will not be subject to the Brown Act, as it will be engaged as a resource for staff acting in an operational capacity, with recommendations ultimately being provided to the City Council for consideration and action at a public meeting.

During the Stay at Home Order issued by the Governor, and to ensure a healthy and safe environment for all, the Application will be available on the City’s website at Interested parties may also request the Application Packet via e‐mail. If hard copies are desired, appointments must be made during available office hours (with a 24‐hour advanced notice).

You will need to contact the Management Services Department when you arrive for a scheduled appointment so that you can be met at the front door of City Hall.
