Board and commission members serve in an advisory role to help to direct policy by making suggestions and recommendations to the City Council and City staff. This system of commissions is intended to be representative of, and responsive to, the communities they serve.
Appointive commissions exist within the City as a whole, as well as the counties and towns, special districts and joint exercise of power authorities. Some positions are created by local elected officials and others are mandated by state statute. Each commission has an issue, policy and/or program focus representing its constituencies.
City commissions are public bodies and therefore all meetings are open to all interested parties. Members of the public are encouraged to attend and welcome to comment on matters under consideration.
The effectiveness of commissions is dependent on the commissioners maintaining a strong relationship with the City Council and City staff of public service areas falling within the scope of the commission's charge.
