The Museum Board consists of five members appointed to staggered terms of four years. The Board was created by the City Charter to serve in an advisory capacity to the Council and City Manager in all matters pertaining to the operation of the public museum. (See Charter Article 26.c here.) The Board's powers and duties include recommending to the City Council the adoption of such laws, rules, and regulations as it may deem necessary for the administration and protection of the City Museum. The Board also performs such other duties relating to the museum services as the Council may require by ordinance or resolution.
