Citizen Boards & Committees
The City of Saginaw is fortunate to have a large number of citizens who are willing to volunteer their time, energy, and expertise to serve the community as members of our various boards and committees and who assist in the programs which help maintain the quality of life we enjoy in our city. Advisory boards and committees play a vital role in the decision-making and policy-setting processes, which enhance the quality of life in Saginaw. Issues, projects and programs reviewed by the board and committee members may take hours of deliberation before recommendations are made to the City Council. The City could not function without the many hours of volunteer time, energy, and expertise contributed by each dedicated member of the boards and committees.
Membership is open to all Saginaw residents who have lived in Saginaw for at least one year immediately preceding their appointment, unless otherwise noted by an ordinance, bylaws or regulatory provisions of that board or committee. Regular attendance at all meetings of the board or committee in which one is appointed is required.
If you want to become part of our Saginaw team, the city is seeking interested persons willing to serve on various boards, commissions, and committees. These entities were established to assist and advise the City Council on specific issues. All applicants must have resided in the City of Saginaw for 12 consecutive months prior to appointment. Most positions are filled at the first City Council meeting in June. All positions of the City of Saginaw boards, commissions, and committees are voluntary.
Citizens may apply to serve in any capacity. Most positions have 2-year terms.

- Animal Shelter Advisory Committee
