Our Commitment to Diversity

It is the policy of the City of Hutchinson to assure equal opportunity for all citizens to participate on City boards and commissions. The City is strengthened by diverse representation on City boards and commissions. To this end the City encourages all persons, regardless of race, sex, religion, color, age, national origin, ancestry, or disability to serve on city boards or commissions. The City will actively seek interest statements from groups and individuals who may have been under represented in the past in City appointments and will consider under representation in making future appointments.

Appointment Procedure

Nominations are made to the Mayor by the board or commission, or by the staff liaison in the absence of a nomination. Applicants must complete and sign an Application for Appointment in order to be considered. The applicant must also provide in writing a statement of interest and qualifications, and identify any potential conflicts of interest regarding matters that may come before the specific board or commission. No appointment is official until such time the Mayor makes a recommendation and consent of the Governing Body is given through an affirmative vote, which will be confirmed by letter from the City Manager.
