We are blessed with dedicated, professional citizens willing to share their time and talents to better enhance our community. The City boards and committees provide citizens with an opportunity to become involved in the governance of their city in an area that appeals to their interest. Citizens are appointed to the boards and committees by Council in December for the following year or as vacancies allow.
Other volunteer opportunities also exist within the City. These are not Council appointed, but are important in assisting with tasks in various City Departments or community efforts. Contact the City Manager's Office at 937-754-3030 or by email for more details.
