There are about 50 people out of the city's 12,000 residents whom the council uses "again and again and again" for such positions, Mayor Johnny Crist said at the meeting.

The application is available on the city's website, and it includes an explanation of each board or committee (Alcohol Review Board, the Planning Commission, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Board of Adjustments, the Merit Board, and the Downtown Development Authority) and the selection process.
