Boards and Commissions

The success of local government ultimately depends on the willingness of well-informed, engaged individuals to step into leadership roles to help advise or guide policy on city goals, operations, and resources.

Serving on an advisory committee is an excellent way to serve your community, become more informed about your local government, and see if you’re interested in the commitment to serve as a City Council member.
