One of the highest ideals of citizenship is personal involvement in the democratic process. City boards and commissions provide various opportunities for citizen participation in issues concerning the community and its residents. The City Council/EDA finds it would be advantageous to have an Economic Development Advisory Board to provide input on economic development matters.
Applications are currently being accepted for membership on the Economic Development Advisory Board. The Board shall consist of five members and every effort will be made to appoint members who live or work in South St. Paul. Board members shall be from a variety of industries, including, but not limited to banking, insurance, manufacturing, business services, education, real estate, retail and hospitality with expertise or experience in real estate development, economic development or finance. In addition, the Council will appoint up to three additional ex-officio members who may be from the River Heights Chamber, the Community Development Agency, or Independent School District #6. The City Council will appoint members to the Economic Development Advisory Board at a future City Council meeting.
