Members Sought for City of Prior Lake Advisory Committees
Advisory committees provide input to the City Council regarding specific issues set forth in the body’s bylaws or as delegated by the City Council. Membership is voluntary and three-year appointments are made by the City Council. The procedure for filling openings consists of an application followed by interviews of selected applicants. Advisory body members may invest 10 to 40 hours per month. Occasionally an advisory body may be appointed to investigate a specific issue. Members are expected to review agenda materials prior to meetings, visit the site if applicable, make positive contributions at the meetings and attend a minimum of 75% of the meetings. The City Council considers advisory body recommendations, but advisory bodies do not have policy-making power.
