Some board and commission members apply professional or technical skills, while others simply bring a passion for Gilbert and a willingness to work as part of a team. Whatever board or commission they serve on, members are making a difference in the community.
Through participation in a board, committee or commission, Gilbert citizens can become involved in their local government, provide input, and make recommendations to the Town Council.

Town of Gilbert, Arizona Water Resources
Municipal Property Corporation
The Town of Gilbert is seeking applicants for three regular openings on the Town of Gilbert, Arizona Water Resources Municipal Property Corporation. Some of the incumbents wish to be reconsidered for the position.
Municipal Property Corporations (MPC) are legal entities established to provide a financing mechanism for certain capital improvement projects. Historically, these corporations have been used to finance debt for growth-related projects with much of the debt service paid by system development fees. Participation and expectations vary tremendously from year to year. In years when bonds are not sold, there is often just one annual meeting which is required to review the annual finances for the MPC. In other years when a bond sale is anticipated, much might be required of the MPC.
Members must reside within the Town limits.
The ideal candidate for the Water Resources Municipal Property Corporation will be satisfied with the sometimes limited activity, but also fully engaged when the need arises. He/she will have demonstrated ability to:
- understand moderately complex financial statements;
- process complex information and draw reasonable conclusions; and
- work effectively with other corporation members and with staff.
