Opportunities to serve

Recently I emailed many of you asking if you would be interested in serving on the City Council's Audit Selection Committee. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of you who replied with a willingness to serve. So I am going to take my chances again....

The City Council is looking to appoint people to many different boards. In all cases, the nominations are due by June 1. If you are interested in any of these boards, please let me know, and I will consider nominating you.

Environmental Advisory Board: http://cityofpensacola.com/boards/eab
  The council is looking for one at-large member and one member who is an employee of a Federal, State, or local environmental agency. City residency is preferred.

Gateway Review Board: http://cityofpensacola.com/boards/gatewayreview
  The council is looking for nominations for all positions on this board. Three property owners within the district, and an at-large member, an architect, a landscape architect, and an engineering or building contractor, all of whom should not own property in the district.

Parks and Recreation Board: http://cityofpensacola.com/boards/parks
  The council is in need of two members for this board.

West Florida Public Library Board: http://cityofpensacola.com/boards/libraryboard
  The council is in need of a city resident to serve on this board.

I look forward to nominating candidates for each of these boards. Please let me know if any of these are of interest.
