App Community Help iconCitizens wanting to serve on the Mesquite Recreation Center Fee Review Committee need to submit their Public Service Application by Thursday at noon to the City Clerk’s Office. The short-term citizen committee will study Recreation Center fees and will make recommendations at the Dec. 10 City Council Meeting. 

“While we are looking for committee members with experience in accounting, marketing or fitness/recreation management, we’d like to have some frequent Rec Center members who want to help us take an objective look at our fee structure,” said Bryan Dangerfield, Director of Athletics & Leisure Services. “While the committee’s main focus is about finding satisfactory pricing levels, it will also look at establishing a fund for capital improvement and repairs as well.” 

The committee will be made up of at least five members and meetings will be properly noticed, agendized and open to the public. All meetings will be held in the Training Room on the second floor at Mesquite City Hall, 10 East Mesquite Blvd. The first meeting to organize the structure of the committee is at noon on Monday, Oct. 14, followed by a Town Hall meeting at 5 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, and the final committee meeting at noon on Monday, Nov. 4.

Committee members, who must be Mesquite residents, need to fill out a Public Service Application form which can be downloaded from the city website (www.mesquitenv.gov/city-government/forms-documents/committees) or picked up at the City Clerk’s office at City Hall. 

 Public Service Appointment applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s office by noon on Thursday, Sept. 12. Residency will be verified at the time of application. All applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office in order to be considered for appointment.

For additional information, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at (702) 346-5295, Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
