ABOUT THE COMMISSION:
The Parks and Recreation Commission is composed of seven commissioners serving staggered two-year terms.
Commissioners are appointed by the City Council and receive a stipend of $40 per meeting. The Parks and
Recreation Commission serves in an advisory capacity to the City Council about matters pertaining to park
development, park and recreation facility use issues, and recreation programming and related issues.
The Commission meets on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m. in the Vacaville City Council Chamber.
On occasion, the commission chair may call special meetings if necessary. Commissioners are expected to be
fully prepared to discuss and take action on agenda items. In addition to attending meetings, commissioners
spend a considerable amount of time preparing for meetings by reviewing the agenda packet and, when
applicable, making site visits, meeting with constituents, or participating on subcommittees of the Parks and
Recreation Commission. Prospective applicants should seriously consider the time commitment of serving on a
commission and evaluate their ability to meet that commitment. It is important that all commission members
attend and actively participate in commission meetings as well as the programs for which their commission is
responsible. Individuals with heavy business and/or personal commitments may find those commitments
preclude effective service on a commission.
Appointment of members will be made by the City Council at an open City Council meeting. Upon
appointment, designated members will be required to file a Conflict of Interest disclosure statement, complete
2 hours of certified Ethics Training in accordance with AB 1234 and 2 hours of certified Anti-Harassment
Training in accordance with AB 1661.
I certify that I am aware of the obligations and responsibilities of appointment to the Parks and Recreation
Commission and am willing and able to fulfill these commitments should I be appointed:
