Volunteer/Citizen Appointment

The City Council created a variety of committees, boards, and commissions to provide public input and assist them in information gathering and the deliberative process. These positions are held by resident volunteers. Serving on these boards offers an opportunity for public involvement in the governmental process. Members' contributions are invaluable to the City Council and the City.
