In the spirit of the 13 Ways Community Project, the Elk Rapids Village Government is excited to invite all community members with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas to apply for an array of volunteer positions to aid in the decision-making process of our municipality. Elk Rapids is fortunate to have an abundance of highly educated, community-focused people. Serving on a village commission is a fulfilling experience and a great way to give back to our community. The Village Government is seeking volunteers, both new and seasoned, with fresh ideas for the following board/commission positions:

  • Beautification Commission
  • Downtown Development Authority
  • Harbor Commission
  • Housing Commission
  • Parks and Recreation Commission
  • Planning Commission
  • Zoning Board of Appeals.

For requirements to serve on each board and commission, please view the bylaws on the board or commission’s page on the Village website.

Applications are available on this post, document center, or at the Government Center, 315 Bridge Street. Please submit application to no later than Wednesday, March 23, 2022 (one week earlier than previously advertised). Thanks for your interest in serving our community!
