The Town of Culver has several board and commission openings that they are currently accepting applications for.
Tuesday evening the Town Council was anticipated to make appointments but without enough candidates, the council decided to open up the application process for another week.
Culver Clerk-Treasurer Karen Heim said, “This is a great way to serve the community as well as be involved in decisions that can craft the future of Culver.”
There is one Plan Commission seat open that will be appointed by the town council president to a four-year term. To keep the commission politically balanced per state statute, the appointees should be a republican or independent.
One seat is open on the Culver Board of Zoning Appeals. This seat is also appointed by the town council president to a four-year term. The five Redevelopment Commission seats are open due to them only being one-year terms. Two of the seats are appointed by the town council president and the remaining three are appointed by the council members. The Culver Tree Commission has two seats open. Both seats are appointed by the town council members, and they are for three-year terms. There is also one Library Board appointed open. This position would also be appointed by the Culver Town Council members.
To serve in these positions, you must be a resident of the Town of Culver for at least a year.
Anyone interested in serving should complete an application. They can be completed online and e-mailed it the Culver Town Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org or printed out and returned to the Culver Town Hall. The deadline to submit applications is 4 p.m., on Monday, January 16.
Members of the Culver Town Council plan to conduct interviews Thursday afternoon and Friday in preparation for making appointments at their January 24th meeting. Although Town Hall will be closed Monday, January 16th in observance of Martin Luther King Day, you may place printed applications in the drop box in the police lobby (mailbox slot on the left wall). You also may return applications electronically to the town clerk.
