Boards, Committees & Councils

There are more than 50 Boards, Committees, and Councils that assist citizens in their interaction with government. They are positions attained by either appointment or election and the majority are volunteer in nature. It is through the assistance of these dedicated citizens that we have citizen representation in the business of government.
