    Excuse me, but why are non-city residents able to serve on city commissions. It seems reasonable to me that Placerville residents should sit on these commissions and committees.

    Almost every City Committee or Commission does require city residency. The exception to that is the Community Pride Committee which is primarily responsible for the maintenance of adopt-a-spots in the downtown and other beautification projects on City property. It is not felt that a desire to garden or help maintain a city property should be limited to city residents only. The Planning Commission does allow for a minority of seats (2) to be held by business owners in the city limits as long as that individual also lives within the community region. The community region slightly expands the city limits and "rounds off" some of the irregular city/county boundary lines. Those two Planning Commission seats may also be filled by residents. The majority of the Planning Commission must be City residents.
