The Role of Boards and Committees in County Government.

Boards and committees play an important role in local county government. They are tasked with providing crucial decision making, advice and recommendations to county officials, as well as providing services and oversight for specific projects and initiatives.


The members of these boards, often chosen from the local community, represent all segments of the population. They ensure that their decisions reflect the needs and interests of a variety of individuals, including those from the traditionally underrepresented or marginalized populations in the area. The end goal is to create an open dialogue between citizens, elected officials, businesses and other stakeholders so that any issue or project can be discussed openly in order to reach responsible conclusions that best serve the needs of everyone involved. The active participation of members on these boards can help increase public involvement in local government decisions.
