City Boards, Commissions, Committees and Officers

Please be advised that all current board members shall continue to serve until a qualified successor is chosen. This means that boards and committees can continue with their work beyond June 30, 2018.

If you have already served on a board, commission or committee, thank you for your dedication. The Mayor shall appoint the members of committees, boards, commission or officers for whom no other method of appointment or selection is provided by the Charter. All such members of committees, boards, commission or officers, with the exception of members of the board of assessors, shall be residents of Framingham. The Mayor may also appoint such ad hoc committees or working groups as the Mayor deems appropriate to advise the Mayor on matters affecting the municipality. The Mayor shall strive to the extent practicable to seek appointees to such committees, boards, commissions and/or offices from the entire city, reflecting both demographic and geographic diversity of membership.
