Special Legal Counselors must have resided in Coppell for at least one year, must be registered to vote, and must be licensed to practice law in the State of Texas. The City is seeking two or more Special Counselors. 

The Ethics Review Panel reviews and investigates Code of Ethics complaints, forwarded from Special Legal Counsel, to determine if a violation occurred. The City is seeking nine panel members. To be eligible to serve on the Ethics Review Panel, applicants must have resided in Coppell for at least one year and must be registered to vote. 

Applications will be accepted online at coppelltx.gov/boards from May 2 - June 13, 2022. If you are unable to apply online, need assistance, or have questions, call the City Secretary's office at 972-304-3669.
