Each year, 40 community-minded and passionate individuals serve on the City’s commissions. Our commissioners provide valuable leadership to the City through their active participation on the Covington Economic Development Council and the Arts, Human Services, Parks and Recreation, and Planning Commissions.
Now is your chance to join this group of concerned and dedicated citizens who play a significant role in city government. Of the City’s five commissions, there are three upcoming openings on the Parks and Recreation Commission for citizens who want to be advocates, proactive participants, and leaders in the growth of Covington’s Parks and Recreation facilities and programs. There are also currently two open positions on the Arts Commission.
