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.

Apply for boards, committees, and councils using our NEW web form! Descriptions of each group are included in the application.
