City of Moscow Now Accepting Applications for Farmers Market Commission

The City of Moscow is now accepting applications for the Farmer Market Commission, created by City Council action on March 18, 2013. The new Commission has been charged with suggesting ways to promote and improve the Farmers Market, propose and/or review Market policies, keep abreast of trends and opportunities for advancing Market interests, products, standards, and offerings, and to otherwise act in an advisory role to the Council.  Membership for the Commission will include Farmers Market vendors (3), the Chamber of Commerce (1), University of Idaho Extension (1), and four at-large community positions.  

Applications are being accepted for all positions.  The City invites citizens who are interested in the Market and would like to serve to consider applying.  Candidates for at-large positions may not be relatives of Market vendors, employed by the Chamber of Commerce, or employed by the University of Idaho Extension office. 

The process for appointment begins with an individual’s submission of a City of Moscow Application for Appointment. Each application will be reviewed, and those who meet the criteria for the position will be invited to interview with the Mayor.  Pending the Mayor’s decision, intended appointments will be put forward to the City Council for confirmation.
