The City of Plant City has several boards, each set up to perform specific functions. Citizen participation in local government is essential if we are to maintain the quality of life we enjoy in Plant City.
Opportunities exist for citizen volunteers to work in harmony with the government by serving on advisory boards. All board and committee meetings are open to the public according to the State of Florida's Sunshine Law.
Sufficient notice must be given to the public before a meeting is called. All proceedings are matters of public record.
Serving on a Board
In general, individuals may serve on only 1 board at a given time. Most advisory groups meet at least once a month, however, there are varying degrees of commitment, depending on the board. Membership requirements may vary with each board.
Individuals can view all Board vacancies. All interested residents are encouraged to submit an application to the City Commission in care of the City Clerk's Office.
Please download our Board Member Application and when completing the application, list the boards on which you are interested in serving by order of preference. Upon completion, return your application to:
City Clerk Kerri J. Miller 302 W Reynolds Street
Plant City, FL 33563
The City Commission appoints members of the boards. All positions are voluntary and members are not compensated for their time. However, the individuals who serve on the boards and committees provide an invaluable service to the city.
Their advice and expertise on a wide range of topics assist the City Commission in its decision-making process.
