Commissions & Committees

Piedmont has for many years been known as "the City of Volunteers." Many residents offer their services to the City as unpaid members of a city commission or committee. In February of each year, the City Clerk posts a list of vacancies for commissions and standing committees. The City Council interviews and appoints new members in March for three-year terms. Appointees are eligible for no more than two consecutive terms.

Ad hoc or special committees are created from time to time by the City Council and serve until the completion of their specific charge. Vacancies for these committees are listed as they occur.

The Notice of Appointive Vacancies (PDF) provides up-to-date information regarding opportunities for service and the required Application for Appointive Vacancy (PDF) can be downloaded, completed, and returned to:

Form 806 - Agency Report of Public Official Appointments

The California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) requires cities to post a single Form 806, which reports additional compensation that officials receive when appointing themselves to positions on other committees, boards or commissions of a public agency, special districts, and joint power agencies/authorities. Each agency must post a single Form 806 listing all paid appointed positions including the date appointed, length of term, and stipend amount. View the City's Form 806.

Information Technology Enterprise Systems Catalog

On October 11, 2015, the Governor signed into law SB 272, which added Section 6270.5 to the Government Code. The section requires local agencies, including the City of Piedmont, to create a catalog of enterprise systems used by the local agency and post the catalog on its website. The section defines enterprise systems and provides for certain exemptions from inclusion in the catalog.
