Boards & Commissions

Commissions and Boards are advisory bodies, appointed by the Council, that serve as an important link between the City Council and Community by providing direct involvement in policy-making and communication of vital information. Serving on a Commission or Board is done on a voluntary basis, but is a very rewarding experience.
