Boards, Commissions & Committees

The City establishes commissions, committees, and boards to make recommendations to the City Council on matters within the City’s jurisdiction. The Council, at its discretion, may establish ad hoc committees or task forces to advise the Council on specific issues.


To be considered for appointment to a board, commission, or committee, interested individuals must complete a City Commission / Committee Member Application, and submit the completed application to:

Malibu City Hall
Attn: City Clerk’s Office

Individuals may serve on only one commission, board, or committee at any given time, in accordance with Council Policy No. 48 – Opportunity to Serve (adopted February 25, 2013).

No compensation is paid for participation on any of the City’s boards, commissions, or committees.

Active City Councilmembers may not be appointed as a member of any City board, commission, or committee. Councilmembers do serve on City Council Subcommittees and Ad Hoc Committees.
