Applying to serve on an advisory board is the first step! After you submit your application, the Town Clerk will forward it to the advisory board chair and staff liaison.  You will then be contacted by the chair and asked to attend an upcoming meeting of the advisory board. This will allow you to more fully understand the work and commitment of the board. After you have attended a meeting, the chair will submit forms indicating such. Those forms, along with your application, will be reviewed by the Town Council.

The Town Council appoint citizens to serve on advisory boards and commissions. These volunteers perform a vital role in our community by contributing their time, expertise and talent to the Town. As advisory board members, they serve willingly and without compensation. They interpret town codes, they counsel and advise elected officials and they listen to citizen appeals.
