Commissions

Claremont has five commissions whose purpose is to advise and assist the City Council in dealing with issues related to the commission's area of concern. They do this by gathering pertinent information, hearing arguments, weighing values, and making recommendations to the council. Several of the commissions also have some administrative powers. The commissioners, along with the City Council, typically do not hold meetings during the month of August.

Commission Appointments

Each commission is comprised of seven citizens appointed by the Mayor after consultation with and full approval by the City Council. The council relies heavily on the recommendations of individuals and community groups when making commission appointments. Qualifications for commission service include: Claremont residency (with certain exceptions), a strong interest in the community and the work of the commission, and the ability to give generously of one's time when serving. Commissioners serve four-year terms, with terms ending August 31.

Residents wishing to be considered for a commission appointment should submit an application to the City Clerk. Applications are available on-line in a printable PDF format by clicking the link below, or by calling the City Clerk at (909) 399-5460.
