CIAB/Public Works Commission

Mission Statement

The mission of the CIAB/Public Works Commission is to review and make recommendations related to Public Works capital improvement projects and programs.


The Public Works Commission was established in February 1996. It was combined with the Citizen's Infrastructure Advisory Board (CIAB) and Beautification, Landscape and Tree (BLT) Committee in 2021*.  The responsibilities of the commission are as follows:

Meeting Times and Dates

The Public Works Commission holds regular monthly meetings, on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:00 PM at the Utilities Yard located on 19021 Huntington Street. All meetings are open to the public and special meetings may be called in conformance with the Ralph M. Brown Act.

Members and Appointments

The CIAB/Public Works Commission consists of eight (8) members who are residents of the City of Huntington Beach. The commissioners are comprised of members from the PWC and CIAB at the time the two were merged.  After completion of the CIAB member remaining terms, the each City Council member appoints a member of the Commission to a term that coincides with the City Council member's term.  No member may have interest in any contract with the city either during his or her terms or for a period of one year after cessation of Commission service. All members serve without compensation, may hold no other office or employment in city government and no other employment that is incompatible with Commission service.


In the event a member retires or is unable to complete his term, an appointment shall be made to fill the remainder of the unexpired term.
