Boards and Commissions

The City of Eureka has twelve active boards and commissions that serve as advisory bodies to Council. Board and Commission meetings can be viewed on the View Meetings page. Download the "Boards, Commissions & Committee Handbook" to learn more about City Boards & Commissions. 


In order to be eligible for appointment to any board or commission, a person must be a qualified registered elector of the City of Eureka, the Humboldt Community Services District, or be the owner of a business located within the city limits of the City of Eureka. Appointments of qualified non-city residents require a four-fifths vote of the Council for confirmation.


Members on boards and commissions serve as a civic responsibility and without compensation. No member of any board or commission may hold any paid office or employment in the city government.
