Douglass Center Advisory Board
The purpose of the Douglass Center Advisory Board is to make recommendations to the City Commission regarding the operation of the Douglass Community Center. In addition, the board recommends an annual budget for the operation of the Douglass Center, advises the City Commission regarding the scope and content of programs to be initiated at Douglass Center, advises the City Commission regarding staff of the Douglass Center, and submits monthly and annual reports to the City Commission regarding operations of the Douglass Center.
The board consists of seven members — four geographical (residents of Ward 1, Ward 4, Precinct 1 in the city limits) and three at-large, of which two are recommended to be younger than 18 years old. If those two positions cannot be filled within 45 days of the vacancy, the board may make recommendations to the mayor, regardless of age, and the mayor may choose to appoint from the recommendations or make the appointment of his own choosing.
