How long are the terms?

The length of term for board appointments varies from 1 to 5 years, depending upon the board, with most having a 3-year term.

In 1979, City Council established a maximum length of service in that no member of a City board, commission, or committee may serve continuously for more than three terms. Some boards may have different maximum length of service requirements via State Code, By-Laws, etc.
