Boards and Commissions

The following volunteer boards and commissions serve our community by providing advice and recommendations to the Mayor and City Council regarding programs, activities, and issues unique to their mission and purpose.

At the July 17, 2012 City Council Meeting the council voted to approve Ordinance No. 3890 which allows each of the City's Boards and Commissions deriving its authority from the ordinance codified in Title 10 to appoint a high school or college student to participate as a non-voting member of the board or commission. The Student Representative will attend regular meetings of the body to which they have been appointed but will not attend executive sessions. Only one (1) Student Representative will be appointed to any given board or commission.

The links below provide additional information about specific boards and commissions.
