Apply for Board Vacancies

PZ Board-websize

The city of Apache Junction is seeking applicants for various boards and commissions. Serving on a board or commission provides an opportunity to work closely with other citizens and the city council to help make decisions about the future of the city. 

Board and commission members are appointed by council after submission of an application and a council interview during a work session meeting. Appointments are unpaid and serve a fixed term (terms vary by board and commission). 

The following is a list of current vacancies and the term lengths:

§ Board of Adjustment                                      3-year terms

§  Construction Code Board of Appeals             2-year terms

§  Health and Human Services Commission      3-year terms

§  Library Board                                                 3-year terms

§  Municipal Property Corporation Board          3-year terms

§  Parks and Recreation Commission                 3-year terms

§  Planning and Zoning Commission                 3-year terms

§ Public Safety Personnel Retirement Board    4-year terms

The new Arts Commission will also have openings soon. 

All appointments require residency within the city of Apache Junction with the exception of the Construction Code Board of Appeals and the Health and Human Services Commission. While it is helpful if you have some experience or knowledge about the board or commission on which you wish to serve, the desire to contribute your talents, ideas and opinions to enhance the community is most important. Time commitments vary based on the specific appointment; some meet monthly while others meet on an as-needed basis.  

Applications must be submitted online by Friday, Sept. 6 and can be found at Additional information on the city’s boards and commissions is also available online.  For those who do not have access to a computer, applications can be submitted online using a public computer available at the Apache Junction Public Library, 1177 N. Idaho Rd.  Candidates will be interviewed and appointed at council meetings in September and October.  For additional information or assistance please contact the city manager’s office at (480) 474-5066.
