Applications Underway for City Boards and Commissions with Fall Appointments


Applications are now being accepted for City of New Braunfels boards and commissions that have Fall appointments. Applications are due by September 30th, 2023, and appointments reaching expiration under the Fall term will end November 30th each year, with the new appointment beginning on December 1st.  Here are the committees that are currently accepting applications:

  • Animal Services Advisory Board
  • Building Standards Commission
  • Cemetery Committee
  • Civil Service Commission
  • Library Advisory Board
  • New Braunfels Economic Development Corporation (NBEDC - 4B Board)
  • New Braunfels Utilities Board
  • Parks and Recreation Advisory Board
  • Partnership Committee
  • Workforce Housing Advisory Committee
  • Community Development Advisory Committee
  • Landa Park Golf Course Advisory Board
  • River Advisory Committee

 “Applying for a City board or commission is easy, with an online application process that lets you upload your information, including resume and cover letter,” said City Secretary Gayle Wilkinson. “Boards and Commissions offer citizens an opportunity to directly participate in their City government by giving important feedback and direction to City Council. We hope anyone interested in one of these positions will join us for our upcoming Open House event to learn more.”

 The open house event is an opportunity for residents to hear directly from City staff about the various boards and commissions and their roles in City government. That event is set for August 15th, from 5pm to 7pm, in the Tejas Room at New Braunfels City Hall, located at 550 Landa Street.

 Some boards and commissions have different eligibility requirements, so each application will be reviewed to ensure those are met. Those who are appointed to serve on a board or commission will then be required to complete one hour of training on the Texas Open Meetings Act.
