In order to tap into the wealth of skills, experience, and interest within our community, the St. Charles City Council utilizes a number of appointed boards, commissions, and committees to advise and make recommendations to the City Council and staff on a wide variety of issues that are crucial to our quality of life.
The Deputy Clerk maintains a current list of City Boards, Commissions and Committees, the current seats available, and upcoming meeting dates and times. The Deputy Clerk also coordinates all appointments to these positions. Each year, the following year’s vacancies are posted at City Hall.
Public involvement is crucial to the City’s decision-making process, and these appointed advisory bodies are an important and valued part of City government. By advising the City Council and staff, bringing new ideas to the table, and representing all of the diverse elements of our community, members of our boards, commissions, and committees will be helping our City Council to make the best, most informed decisions possible, for the benefit of the entire community.
Interested in serving? The basic requirements are that applicants must have an interest in civic involvement, and must be 18 years of age or older, a United States citizen, and a resident of incorporated St. Charles (some board or commission positions may have additional requirements or preferred areas of expertise).
