The openings, all unpaid, are for Gilbert residents on the Planning Commission and the Self-Insured Trust Board.
The partial term on the Planning Commission ends on Sept. 29, 2024. The alternate terms on the commission are for one year and end Sept. 29, 2022.
The commission also acts as the design review board. The commission reviews and advises town council on a variety of planning issues, including long range community planning goals and policies, immediate planning problems, design review (site plans, landscape, architecture), and specific development proposals.
Ideal candidates recognize the need for balance between individual property rights and the long-term needs of the community, according to the town.
The commission typically meets monthly, and the position requires a significant time commitment.
The term on the Self-Insured Trust Committee is for three years, and trustees also must be qualified electors.
Trustees serve as fiduciaries to the town of Gilbert’s self-funded medical and dental plans, as well as the workers’ compensation plan, and management of the trusts. The trustees provide oversight of plan administration and financials and make recommendations to town council regarding risk retention and reinsurance options and funding requirements.
The ideal candidate may have experience in the medical industry, finance, health insurance, workers’ compensation insurance and/or human resources with strong analytical and creative thinking skills, according to the town.
The board typically meets quarterly or as needed.
The deadline to apply for any of the positions is 11:59 p.m. Aug. 24. Residents may apply online at https://commissions.gilbertaz.gov/apply or by paper application through contacting Deputy Town Clerk Judy Martinez at 480-503-6791 or [email protected]
