CivicLex’s Contract to Review Boards and Commissions up for Vote


Earlier this year, LFUCG released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to conduct an evaluation of LFUCG’s 69 Boards and Commissions, including their membership, structure, diversity, vacancy rates, appointment process, and more. CivicLex, in partnership with CivStart, a national nonprofit focused on  local government technology, submitted a response to the RFP and were eventually selected for the project!

In this Tuesday’s Work Session, Council will take the first step in deciding whether to approve our contract. If approved, we will begin work on evaluating the accessibility and structure of LFUCG’s Boards and Commissions this spring, and conclude the project by the end of 2024. We’re very excited for the opportunity to work with LFUCG and Lexington residents to understand how the City’s Boards and Commissions could be more effective, efficient, and representative of our community.

Council Work Session will take place this Tuesday, April 23 at 3pm in Council Chambers. You can attend in person or watch on LexTV.
