Serve on a Committee
Mayor Coleman is seeking applications for individuals to serve on the various City of Saint Paul committees, boards, and commissions. Mayor Coleman greatly values the contributions of residents and stakeholders who are currently serving Saint Paul and is committed to identify and recruit the best candidates to serve our community going forward.

The City of Saint Paul has over 30 boards and commissions to which the Mayor and the City Council appoint members. These boards and commissions cover a wide range of topics and appeal to a variety of interests, from public safety, education, and housing to economic development. The Mayor and City Council rely on committees, boards and commissions for thoughtful advice to create policies and develop programs. The size of the board, criteria for membership, required Saint Paul residency and member terms are set forth in most cases by an enabling state statute, city ordinance, or Executive Order.

The City of Saint Paul actively seeks applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences to reflect the views and effectively represent the diverse communities of Saint Paul. Appointments are primarily made twice each year; in the spring and in the fall. (Interim appointments can be made on an as needed basis).

Current opening information will soon be available by clicking on the ‘Current Openings’ link on the left side of this page. Staff is not able to contact or interview all applicants for all positions; however each applicant should receive confirmation that their application has been received. 

Applications for the next appointment cycle should be submitted by the recommended deadline for full consideration; however applications are always accepted on a rolling basis and will be considered at the next appointment cycle. The city will be distributing and posting a listing of upcoming openings prior to the next appointment cycle.
