Volunteer Opportunities in Barre City

The City of Barre is seeking applications for volunteers to serve on City committees, task forces, boards, and commissions.  Participation in these public bodies is a great way ­­­to get involved in your community, and lend your expertise or interest to make the City an even better place to live.  If you are interested in serving your community, please see the application process information below.  Questions? Email the City Manager.

Application Process

Interested applicants must complete an application form.

Note: You do not need to physically “sign” the application form, typing your name on the fillable form is acceptable.

Volunteers currently serving on these public bodies who (1) have expiring terms and (2) are seeking reappointment must also submit applications and will be interviewed in accordance with City Council policy.

Applicants will be required to attend a Council meeting for a brief interview with members of the Council to discuss their interest in the public body to which they applied.  Council meetings generally occur every other Tuesday at 6:00 PM in-person at City Hall and via Zoom.  A schedule of upcoming Council meetings can be located on the City’s website.  Candidates will be invited to a specific meeting for the brief interview.

Additional Information

Applicants are encouraged to attend a meeting or speak to the chair of public bodies they are interested in joining. 

The City of Barre is committed to providing equal opportunities to all volunteers and applicants, including historically discriminated and under-represented populations.
