Some board and commission positions are appointed by the City, while others are open to residents via an application process.
The Civil Service Commission is responsible for the recruitment, testing, hiring and promotion of Fife Police Department employees.
Fife’s Lodging Tax Advisory Commission was established to advise the city council on how to use city lodging tax revenue for tourism purposes.
The Fife Parks Advisory Board advises the Parks and Recreation Department on issues related to parks, community events, community facilities and recreational programming.
The Fife Planning Commission reviews staff proposals, holds public hearings, and submits recommendations to the city council on amendments to the comprehensive plan, development plans, and area-wide zoning proposals and text amendments.
The mission of the Fife Public Arts Commission is to identify and actively encourage the development and sustainability of the arts in the city by serving as the city’s primary resource in matters of public art and culture.
