Recent discussion among current and former city of Sierra Vista officials has focused on what can be done to get people actively involved. The number of open seats on city commissions and other volunteer boards is apparently more than it has been in the past. An article by Herald/Review reporter Dakota Croog on Friday highlighted the situation.

“(At) a City Council meeting in March, the city said an analysis was being done to examine the lack of participation in non-regulatory commissions. Public Information Officer Adam Curtis said city staff will give the Council an update on commissions regarding attendance rates and recent membership in the coming months,” according to the article.
