  • About the Boards, Commissions, and Committees

    1. Citizens provide a great insight and knowledge to City government. An avenue that the City of Lawrenceville uses to get this insight is through the various Boards, Commissions, and Committees. The members of the Boards, Commissions, and Committees make decisions and help recommend and review policies for the City of Lawrenceville Departments, Mayor, and Council. Due to the volume of applicants expressing an interest in serving and the important issues that the Board, Commission, and Committee members face, this questionnaire has been developed to assist the Mayor and Council in the review process of applications.  In addition, it will determine applicant eligibility requirements and qualifications for Board, Commission, or Committee membership.

    2. Questions to consider before applying for membership on a Board, Commission, or Committee:
      • Do I fully understand what this Board, Commission, or Committee expects from me?
      • Am I committed to the goals/interests of the Board, Commission, or Committee… to the mission/purposes of the organization?
      • Can I afford the demands on my time, resources, and energy?
      • Will I attend meetings regularly, making them a priority for the duration of my appointment?
      • Am I willing to perform a reasonable amount of work outside of regularly scheduled Board, Commission, or Committee meetings and be well prepared for each meeting?
      • Can I work effectively with other members of the Board, Commission, or Committee, the City Manager, and Department Directors?
      • What is my real motivation for accepting membership on the Board, Commission, or Committee?
      • If Controversy arises, will I be able to be impartial and unbiased in not taking sides when needed?
      • Am I willing to participate in necessary Board/Commission/Committee training, education, and development activities that will improve my effectiveness in my position?
