Boards and Commissions

Boards & Commissions

Board and Commission members provide input to the Mayor, City Council, City Manager and city departments on a variety of issues affecting the city. All residents are welcome to participate in this important process. Good government is not just the responsibility of elected officials and city employees—residents also play an important role.
