[ARCHIVED] City of Abilene Board and Commission Openings

The City of Abilene seeks candidates to serve on its Airport Advisory Board and Planning Commission.

“These are important roles in our community, and we need community members to serve,” said Jane Foltz, Abilene City Manager. “There are three vacancies on the Planning Commission and one opening on the Airport Advisory Board.” 

The Planning Commission makes decisions and recommendations regarding the Comprehensive Plan, zoning changes, plats, conditional use permits, development code changes, and other applications as required. The Planning Commission is also charged with the following responsibilities as they act as the Board of Zoning Appeals to hear and decide on applications for a variance. Current members include: Travis Sawyer, Bill Marshall, Brenda Finn-Bowers, and Rod Boyd. 

The Airport Advisory Board makes recommendations to the City Commission in matters relating to the development operation and maintenance of the Abilene Municipal Airport.  Current members include: Jim Price, Norman Schmidt, Ralph Viola, Bruce Youtsey, and Jim Curtis.

“These boards meet monthly or as needed,” Foltz said. “These are important positions both now and for the future of Abilene. The decisions these boards make can have long term effects for the City of Abilene and its residents.”
