Dozens of unpaid appointees sit on a variety of boards and commissions that may not be generally well known to the public, but are still an important part of Ocean City’s local government.
They include the planning and zoning boards, the Historic Preservation Commission, the Library Board of Trustees, the Tourism Development Commission and others. There is even a Shade Tree Commission that oversees the planting and maintenance of trees and shrubbery on public streets and property in town.
City Council approved an ordinance Thursday night to temporarily end term limits for the appointees on those boards and commissions to avoid the need to make “massive appointments” by the end of the year.
