In a city commission government, voters elect a small commission, typically, from five to seven members, on a plurality-at-large voting basis. These commissioners constitute the legislative body of the city and, as a group, are responsible for taxation, appropriations, ordinances, and other general functions.
The commission meets monthly the second Thursday, 7:00 p.m., at city hall, 32 East Main Street, Halliday, ND. For more information or to place an item on the agenda, please e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Planning & Zoning Board
A planning and zoning board is a locally elected or appointed government board charged with recommending to the local city commission the boundaries of the various original zoning district and appropriate regulations to be enforced and proposed amendments. They also are responsible for collecting data and staying informed of the best city planning and zoning practices. By doing so, they can act appropriately on measures affecting the present and future movement of traffic, the segregation of residential and business districts and the convenience and safety of persons and property in any way dependent on city planning and zoning.
The chairman of the planning and zoning board (or a staff member) is responsible for publishing public hearings in the newspaper about certain matters that come before the board. Some communities elect members of the board. In other jurisdictions the planning and zoning board members are appointed by the mayor or first selectman of the city or town and approved by the city’s legislative body, i.e. city commission, board of aldermen, etc. (some planning and zoning board members are appointed by the city commission as a whole).
The planning and zoning board meets semimonthly, the first and third Mondays.
Park board is used by many government bodies to describe the parts of their organizations that oversee public parks and recreational public works. The last two terms are also sometimes used for an independent park district.
The park board meets monthly the second Monday.
