Apply Online for City Boards and Commissions
New City of Milwaukee online features enable residents to quickly and easily place their names in nomination for appointments to serve on city boards and commissions. The boards and commissions applicant web pages can be accessed on the city’s main page at milwaukee.gov/applytoserve.
Alderwoman Coggs has been an early and strong voice in the city for increasing and expanding community access and involvement in the boards and commissions appointment process, and she encourages residents to get involved and consider submitting their name for consideration using the new options. “The public deserves a nomination system that is more accessible and transparent, and one that will include potential board and commission candidates from across the entire city,” she said. “Residents who want to become more civically active and involved should take advantage of this new process.”
