The Veterans Memorial Commission is composed of volunteer residents and operates as a public interface between City residents and City officials to explore ways in which to honor area veterans and to make recommendations for the preservation and upkeep of the Veteran’s Memorial.The Commission also plans and coordinates appropriate events throughout the year to honor our veterans and encourage citizen involvement in improvements to the Veteran’s Memorial.
The Commission consists of eleven resident members, comprised of an appointed Chairperson, two members from each ward and two additional members-at-large. In addition, one youth representative serves as a non-voting member. The commission has a minimum six members who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Members are appointed to serve for a term of three years.
Regular meetings are held, as needed, on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
Alderman Terri Violet serves as the Aldermanic Liaison to the Veterans Memorial Commission.
