Pleasanton seeks candidates to fill commission and committee vacancies

Six city groups have current openings

The city of Pleasanton is seeking applications to fill vacancies on a variety of commissions and committees.

Applicants must be Pleasanton residents, with the exception of the Economic Vitality Committee, in which case applicants must be employed by a company either located in Pleasanton or that serves the Pleasanton community.

The deadline to apply for any of the positions is Sept. 11.

"If anyone has an interest in learning more about how local government operates or has a specific area of interest, serving on a commission is a great way to connect with your community and to get civically engaged," City Manager Nelson Fialho said in a statement.

The City Council is accepting applications for the following vacancies:

* Civic Arts Commission

* Housing Commission

* Human Services Commission

* Library Commission

* Youth Commission (middle school member)

* Economic Vitality Committee -- 1 member from each of the following categories: business at large, commercial real estate development, commercial services firm, environmental industry, residential real estate broker and residential real estate development.

Mayor Jerry Thorne will conduct interviews on Sept. 25. For more information, contact the City Clerk's Office at 931-5027 or visit
