Citizen Advisory / External Boards, Committees and Commissions


Information for Citizen Advisory Boards, Committees and Commissions listed below is currently unavailable while we make improvements.    Should you have any questions please email [email protected].  For meeting dates, agendas and minutes please click here.
Thank you for your patience.


Looking for a volunteer opportunity that also directly serves your community?  Serve on one of our many Citizen Advisory or External Boards, Committees and Commissions.

When you serve as a volunteer on an advisory body you provide input to the County’s decision-making process in many areas of subject matter expertise. The County and its citizens, in turn, benefit from your service.

Position responsibilities, Commissioner District representation, terms of office, the appointment process and meeting schedules vary for each board, committee, and commission.  Vacancies on boards, commissions or committees
