City Advisory Board Openings

The following City advisory boards have openings:

Community Development Council:
The Community Development Council has two openings. The Council consists of ten members appointed by the City Commission. The Community Development Council reviews CDBG funding applications and makes recommendations to the City Commission concerning funding from the City’s annual Community Development Block Grant. Interested applicants must live within the city limits. The Council meets on demand, generally in February and March. For more information, contact Chris Imhoff at 455-8407.

The NALGC has one opening for a City-appointed representative for a four-year term. The NALGC consists of three standing members (highest ranking Native American officer in the Great Falls Public Education system, Indian Heritage Association Director, and the Indian Family Clinic Director) and four rotating members (two appointed by the City Commission and two appointed by the County Commission).

The NALGC serves as a local point-of-contact for all local City and County government departments to represent the Native American community at the City and County government meetings, functions, and events; to advise City and County governments on Native American needs, issues, forums and planning; to assist and advise in the coordinated review of the status of the local Native American community; and to serve as a clearinghouse of information on grants, employment opportunities and economic development activities for dissemination to Native American communities. Meetings are scheduled quarterly for the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 PM. For more information on the Commission, contact James Parker Shield at 761-3377.

Applications can be picked up at the City Manager's office at the Civic Center, room 201 or by using the online application form available in pdf format.

Deadline to apply is Friday, October 22 by 5:00pm.
