#65: Open applications for committee assignments

The Sturgeon Bay community has talent, knowledge, public service commitment, and diversity of all kinds. It would be an admirable goal for committee membership to reflect that as much as possible. A process might be initiated to welcome interest and applications from community members, and then review all applicants for good matches of these factors to committee assignments. I hope that Sturgeon Bay would consider adopting a practice that so many  Wisconsin communities follow. Below are just a few examples - Eau Claire in particular is an excellent example. Committee applications should be advertised on city website, social media, print media, etc. The City Council could establish a process like one of the following:

Eau Claire as example.

Portage, WI as example.

Janesville, WI as example.
