Community Meeting

The City of Doral currently has 13 advisory boards comprised of citizen volunteers that are passionate about their community and want to be involved. These volunteers are an integral part of helping our local government to run in a responsible and transparent manner. The advisory boards address a number of issues that through time have been identified by the community as important topics that should engage the community. The primary purpose of these boards is to provide sensible advice from a citizen perspective.

Advisory Board members are nominated by Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez as vacancies become available. They meet at least quarterly to discuss, analyze, formulate, and make well-developed recommendations pertinent to their specific board, for the Mayor and Council’s consideration, in collaboration with City staff. The City is grateful for the involved and public-service oriented residents that take time to be part of the process. Their insight is key in helping the City of Doral maintain the high quality of life for our residents, while planning for the future.

Currently, the following boards have limited vacancies:

  • Animal Welfare Committee: To advise the City Council as to policies and procedures that further the humane treatment and population control of animal in the City; to evaluate and opine, upon request by the city council, on the development and implementation of programs in the city aimed at controlling the animal population.
     
  • Citizens Audit Advisory Board: To assist the city council in carrying out its oversight responsibilities as they relate to the city's financial and other reporting practices, internal control, compliance with laws and regulations, independent audit process, and special audit needs, by reviewing and opining on the city's audit report for the preceding year.
     
  • Commission on the Status of Women: To support continuing efforts for economic, political, and social equality of opportunity for all women, with special emphasis on the needs of women in the city; to serve in an advisory capacity to the city council, the city administration, the community and all agencies and persons in the city in respect to all matters pertaining to the status of women.
     
  • Environmental Advisory Board: To advise the city council regarding environmental and conversation elements of the comprehensive plan; to study and make recommendations to the city council with regard to public health concerns resulting from environmental pollution, the reclamation and restoration of degraded properties, and green initiatives that make practical and financial sense.
