Looking for a Few Good Citizens

Mayor Debra Cotterill is accepting applications to serve on several boards and commissions, including the Commission on Human Rights, Board of Adjustments, and Maysville-Mason County Joint Planning Commission. 

The appointment to the Commission on Human Rights would be to fill an unexpired term and would end March 9, 2023. Both Board of Adjustments and Maysville-Mason County Joint Planning have four-year terms, which will expire July 31, 2025.

Mayor Cotterill will be making appointments to additional boards later in the year, including the Convention and Visitors Bureau. 

If you are interested in serving on a Board or Commission, complete the online application here or download an application or request one from the city clerk’s office. After your application is received, you will receive a receipt of application e-mail. If you do not receive that receipt within a day after submittal, please contact City Clerk Lisa R. Dunbar at 606-564-2718 or lrdunbar@maysvilleky.net to make sure that your application has reached the City Clerk’s Office. Once an application is received, the city will place your name on the resource list for the particular board.

Board members and commissioners generally serve as unpaid volunteers, but the rewards can be gratifying. Members meet other residents with similar interests, they learn about the city, and they help shape the future of Maysville.

To find out more about a specific board or commission, please visit their individual web pages. Board and commission meetings are open to the public, so potential applicants are encouraged to sit in on monthly meetings. Meeting dates, times, and locations vary, and are available on individual web pages.
