How to Apply for Boards and Commissions

The deadline for new applications has passed. If you already applied, be sure to save the date for interviews, which are scheduled for City Council in the evening on Thursday, April 5.

Golden City Hall

The Golden City Council encourages citizen participation in municipal government and welcomes your interest in serving on a city board, commission, or committee.

Appointments to city boards and commissions are made by the Mayor, with a majority vote of council, following interviews. Terms on the boards and commissions all expire in April of the end of the appointed term. In February, the city begins recruiting applicants for upcoming vacancies.

Boards and Commissions generally require that members be a resident of the City of Golden. If you are uncertain whether or not your address is within city limits or a part of unincorporated Jefferson County (mailing address is not a good indicator) please check the Jefferson County Address Wizard. The information will be under ‘Municipal Status.’
