Wyandotte Municipal Service Commission
The Wyandotte Municipal Service Commission can trace its history to 1889 when city council appointed a board of water commissioners to oversee the construction and operation of the municipal water system. When voters created the municipal electric utility in 1892, its operations were placed under city council's oversight. In 1896, a board of public works was established and the municipal electric and water utilities were placed under its direction. Local residents approved a new city charter in 1926 that replaced the board of public works with the Municipal Service Commission.
The Wyandotte Municipal Service Commission consists of five local residents appointed to five-year terms by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council. Commissioners serve without compensation. The Municipal Service Commission develops Wyandotte Municipal Services' strategic direction and approves policies, purchases and rates.
The Commission meets every two weeks on the 3rd Floor in the City Council Chambers at 3200 Biddle Avenue. Commission meetings are open to the public and are broadcast on the municipal cable television system for the convenience of local residents.
