County government includes those standing and special citizen boards, commissions, committees and task forces formed to advise the Board of County Commissioners. The committees and boards make recommendations on issues relating to policies directly impacting our community, in addition, to the welfare and quality of life in the County. County Committees are created as a result of State and Federal legislation, agreements with public or private agencies, and local needs. They provide an inter-relationship between the citizenry of the County and local government.
The Citizen Advisory Committees range from short-term, task-oriented to long-term, standing committees with broad-based jurisdictional responsibilities. There are committees for health and human services, senior services, planning, land use, parks, libraries, housing, and others.
