If a candidate is not chosen, the City Secretary’s Office will ask the candidate the second year if they would still like to be considered for the position(s) they submitted on their application. If so, the names of those individuals will be provided to City Council for reconsideration.
City Council reviews all applications and decides during a council meeting who will be appointed or who will be asked to interview. After appointments are made, candidates are sworn into office, typically, the following regular Council meeting. If they were not appointed and were interviewed or not interviewed by Council, they will be asked again the following year to see if they would still like to be considered.
Applications are maintained by the City Secretary’s office for two years. After the second year, the candidate will not be contacted. If the candidate would like to be reconsidered after the second year of the initial submission, they must reapply.
The City Secretary’s office handles all applications, and may be contacted at CSO@missouricitytx.gov or 281.403.8686.
