Members serve a two-year term but in order to provide for staggered terms, the initial four members who reside in the Council districts are appointed for two-year terms and the remaining five members for one-year terms. All subsequent appointments shall be for two-year terms and members may not serve more than four consecutive two-year terms.
If you are interested in serving on the EAC in the future, you may obtain an application form in the City Secretary's Office at Richardson City Hall, 411 W. Arapaho Rd., Suite 202.
