Boards & Committees

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