Member Structure and Organization

The Transportation Commission consists of five to nine members serving without pay. Members of the Commission are appointed by the Mayor subject to the approval of the City Council, and are selected without respect to political affiliation. An appointed member of the Commission must have resided in Latah County for two years prior to his or her appointment and must remain a resident of Latah County during his or her service on the Commission. Individuals living within the delineated Area of City Impact are entitled to representation on the Commission, though this representation must reflect, as nearly as possible, the proportion of population living within the City compared to the population living within the Area of City Impact.

The term of office of the Commission members chosen from the residents at large is five years or until their successors are appointed and qualified. The members hold office at the pleasure of the Mayor, who may revoke appointments at any time and for any reason, subject to the approval of the Council. In addition to the Commission's regular members, a number of officials are entitled to serve as ex officio (non-voting) members, including a representative from the Idaho Transportation Department. Additional information may be found in Moscow City Code Title 03, Chapter 11. To apply for the Commission please complete an application and contact the Commission Staff Liaison for any questions.
