A Planning Commissioner receives $125 per meeting; a Parks & Recreation Commissioner receives $75 per meeting; a Civil Service Commissioner receives $75 per meeting; and a Sustainable City Committee Member receives no compensation. The Signal Hill Municipal Code Sections 2.32.090(D), 2.36.070(D), and 2.80.052(D) states that a commissioner who misses any regular commission meeting due to an unexcused absence, shall not be entitled to receive that portion of their regular monthly salary for such meeting, except that if any additional regular or special meeting is held that month and the commissioner attends such meeting, then the commissioner shall be entitled to their regular monthly salary, without deduction.
The Sustainable City Committee includes two members of the City Council, who are appointed by a majority vote of the City Council.
Commission seats are filled through an application process. Interested residents including incumbent commissioners must apply. Commissioner candidates are interviewed and selected during a noticed public meeting of the City Council. Commissioners may serve on only one of the three commissions.
