Lakewood City Council is seeking volunteers ready to engage with the community and advise their local government. The following opportunities are available:

  • Two vacancies on the Audit Committee

  • One vacancy on the Human Rights Commission

The Audit Committee meets on a quarterly basis with the City’s Finance Director and Council’s Finance Committee to provide independent review and oversight of the City’s financial processes. Members should be capable of reviewing financial statements and reports and serve as an independent forum to report fraud to the auditor. Two two-year terms are available effective January 1, 2020.

The Board of Zoning Appeals meets on the third Thursday of each month to hear and decide all appeals made for variances to the Zoning Code. One five-year term is available beginning January 1, 2020.

The Human Rights Commission meets infrequently as-needed to ensure that Lakewood Codified Ordinances Chapter 516 Discrimination Prohibited is enforced. Chapter 516 protects citizens from discrimination in areas such as employment, housing, education, and public accommodation.

Additional information about these boards and commissions are located in the Lakewood Codified Ordinances, the Third Amended Charter of the City of Lakewood, and on the City’s website at:
