South Pasadena Mayor Michael Cacciotti has announced that the city is accepting applications for its newly created five-member commission, the Public Works Commission.
In a post on the city's Facebook page, Mayor Cacciotti wrote, “Since one of the City Council’s major goals is to repair and replace City infrastructure, and since significant funds have been allotted for that purpose, the City Council has established a volunteer commission comprised of professionals to assist in the process.”
The commission will provide input to the City Council on proposed or planned public works projects. Commissioners further will review major infrastructure projects, as well as projects that have the potential to impact the community significantly, Cacciotti explained.
City officials invite residents to apply from the fields of civil engineering (with an active license), traffic engineering, structural engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, contracting or construction, construction law, or construction management and inspection. Initially, each councilmember will appoint a commissioner with individual terms coinciding with the term of the councilmember.
A commission application is available on the City website at http://www.ci.south-pasadena.ca.us/PDFs/application_citycommission.pdf.
