The City of Centennial is seeking two qualified citizen voting members to serve on the Fiber Commission. The Fiber Commission was established to oversee Centennial FiberWorks, a program to implement the City’s fiber backbone. This backbone will connect and complete the City’s underground fiber infrastructure, connecting to key City sites and other community anchor institutions such as schools, libraries, public safety, etc. The two citizen voting members must be residents of the City and will be appointed at-large, meaning they will represent the citizens throughout the City. To be considered for appointment, citizen voting member applicants should:

  • Demonstrate expertise in a field relevant or associated with the purposes and goals of Centennial FiberWorks and the Commission;
  • Commit to attend Commission meetings twice a month, periodic Council meetings and other occasional community meetings;
  • Be clear of conflicts or potential conflicts of interest or appearance of impropriety on Commission actions; and
  • Affirm purpose and motivation for seeking appointment to the Commission.

The selection committee will consist of the three Council Members currently serving on the Fiber Commission, the Fiber General Manager or designee, and the Director of Fiber Infrastructure.  The selection committee will send its recommendations to the City Council, who will appoint the citizen voting members by a majority vote.  Citizen voting members will serve a term of two years and no appointees may serve for more than a total of eight years. Citizen voting members are entitled to a monthly stipend for their time commitment of at least 10 hours per month which includes minimum twice monthly meetings and review of information and agendas prepared by staff. 

The submission of the application to the City of Centennial Fiber Commission does not guarantee an in-person interview.  Each submitted application will be evaluated based on individual merit.  Instructions regarding the interview process will be sent to qualified applicants who have been selected. 

The deadline to submit a completed application is 5 p.m. Friday, May 12, 2017.

For more information about the formation of the City’s fiber initiative please refer to the City of Centennial Fiber Master Plan, City Council Resolution No. 2016-R-80 and the Fiber Commission Bylaws.
