The Town of Oro Valley is seeking applications from local citizens who are interested in serving on a board or commission. To serve on a board or commission, members must be residents of the Town, be available to attend the designated meetings and be committed to the completion of the Town’s Community Academy within their term.
It is unlikely that applicants, who do not support the current cronies that run the town, will be considered. However, residents who are interested in applying for any of the following positions can contact the Town Clerk’s Office at 520-229-4700 or apply online by visiting the Boards and Commissions Opportunities webpage.
