Advisory Boards and Committees

County government includes those standing and special citizen boards, commissions, committees and task forces formed to advise the Board of Supervisors and County staff on issues, policy and to serve as links to the community. County committees are created as a result of State and Federal legislation, agreements with public or private agencies, and local needs. Boards, Commissions and Committees advise Board of Supervisors on issues relating to the welfare and quality of life in the County. They provide an inter-relationship between the citizenry of the County and the government of the County.

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, criminal justice, elderly, planning, land use, parks, libraries, housing, and others.
