Can you be a Youth Commissioner?

The City is accepting applications for new Youth Commissioners. Members of the Youth Commission serve as an advisory body to the Fairfield City Council on community-wide issues or projects having the potential to impact youth of the community. The Youth Commission interacts with the other City commissions as deemed necessary by project or issue. 

Seven seats are available for appointment; three positions expiring December 31, 2018, and four positions expiring December 31, 2019. Applicants must be residents of Fairfield and between the ages of 12 and 21. Mayor Harry Price will appoint the commission members with the approval of the City Council. 

The Youth Commission currently meets on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. Youth interested in being considered for the commission need to fully commit to making a difference in our community. 

Applications are available at the City Clerk’s Office at Fairfield City Hall, 1000 Webster Street, 4th floor. To receive an application by mail or email, please contact Deputy City Clerk Eva Hoff at 707.428.7402. Applications may be submitted via mail, email, or in person. The City is not responsible for lost or misdirected applications. Applications received after the deadline, including postmarks, will not be accepted. The application deadline is 5 p.m. on Friday, Friday, January 11, 2019. A timely filed application will remain on file for one year if the applicant is not appointed as a commissioner.

Interested individuals may contact Kalie Souza, recreation program coordinator, at 707.428.7652 for more information.
