Boards & Commissions
VolunteeringThe city has established a number of boards and commissions. Each of these serves a different role with most being advisory in nature. Some are state-mandated and others are purely a local creation; however they all make significant contributions to the community and its betterment.
The city is always looking for talented, committed people to serve on its boards and commissions. If you are interested, please contact the city clerk’s office and fill out an application. Vacancies on our boards come up quite frequently and we are always looking to fill open positions. As a volunteer, we will strive to make sure your experience is as productive and rewarding as possible.
