AppointmentsOur democracy is built on the idea of participatory government. One of the best ways you can participate is by serving on a county board or commission. These groups of people just like you or I oversee and advise county elected officials, agencies, and departments on a wide range of vital issues. Take a few minutes to find a board or commission you’re interested in serving on. Click on a link to read more about the board, or if you know where you’d like to serve, Click Here.

It’s up to you to take the first step towards promoting open, honest and effective government.

Thank you,
