Boards and Commissions
The City Council has established a number of Committees, Commissions, and Boards to review City programs, projects, and community issues. These groups provide greater community participation and input into local government and facilitate quality decisions by the City Council. These Committees/Commissions/Boards have been created either by resolution (policy) or ordinance (law) adopted by the City Council.
Committees, Commissions, and Boards provide input to the City Council. Citizen members advise and assist the City Council in special issue areas. Opening additional lines of communication between the general public and the City Council, such groups help assure that City government is responsive to citizens.
Each committee makes recommendations to the City Council. They do not determine or establish City policy or administrative direction.
Benefits of Boards and Commissions include:
- Focusing attention on specific issue areas
- Encouraging citizen participation
- Providing a viewpoint from community neighborhoods
- Making recommendations based on thorough and in-depth analysis of alternatives from a citizen’s perspective
The City Council of the City of Shelby believes that the community is best served when there is a diverse representation of volunteer citizens on the many boards and commissions of City government.
