Boards & Commissions
Board and Commissions are standing bodies established by Town ordinance and appointed by the Clarkdale Town Council to provide ongoing citizen input on major policy areas. Board/Commission members find themselves uniquely situated in the government organization. They are an integral part of the Town Government structure, working with the Town Council, staff and the public. In keeping with the Town's philosophy of citizen involvement, the Town Council appoints citizens to boards and commissions to assist in the formulation of Town policy. They focus attention on specific issues, weigh community values in making recommendations to the Town Council, and thoroughly research and review alternatives to accompany formal recommendations to the Town Council.
