The City of Wellington has a number of Boards and Commissions that advise the Governing Body. Two of the Boards are Authority Boards: Housing and Health Care. The members of each of these bodies are appointed as provided for by applicable Kansas law or City ordinance. Service is voluntary with no compensation.
All member positions are for a four-year term beginning May 1. Member terms are staggered to avoid the replacement of a full board in a single year. Effective with appointments made in 2013 and after, term limits of two consecutive four-year terms will be imposed. The application process is provided for by Resolution.
In December of each year, public notice will be distributed informing of the positions becoming open in the following year. Applications will be accepted prior to January 1. The Governing Body shall review all applications submitted and shall approve appointments prior to the last regular meeting in April.
