Boards and Commissions
The City of Socorro, Texas shall establish and maintain the commissions for the benefit of the residents. The established Commissions all serve different purposes that are beneficial for the City and its development. Commissioners are assigned responsibility for a specific aspect of municipal affairs. One Commissioner is designated to function as Chairman and a second commissioner is designated to function as the Vice Chairman. The role of a Chairman does not involve additional powers beyond that exercised by the other commissioners. Chairing meetings is the principal role. Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor and City Council, without any direct election by the voters, and this role as Chair often is passed as an honorary designation among the entire commission members annually, from one to another by nominations from the commission alone.
