At this time, Commissioner candidates are being interviewed. Once interviews are completed, the names of accepted candidates will be sent to the Mayor's office for consideration. Once candidates have completed this process, they will be presented to City Council in a public meeting, followed by a hearing in front of the Executive Appointments Committee, and then the final confirmation hearing. Once this is completed, candidates will be sworn in by the Mayor.
