We would encourage interested parties to complete a Board and Commissions application form and to submit same to the City Clerk for consideration.

New study groups were recently formed, for which applications are also being excepted:

The City Council is interested in gathering information on the existing and future needs for infrastructure improvements in the City of Lathrup Village. This includes the local streets, sidewalks, water/sewer system, drainage ditches, and culverts. Residents are encouraged to participate on this study group to access the current status of local infrastructure and identify possible funding options. Deadline: April 5, 2019

Marijuana Study Group

The Study Group will explore the impact of marijuana licensing in other communications and formulate recommendations. Citzens representing various perspectives on this topic are encouraged to apply for the study group. Deadline: July 10, 2019
