Boards and Commissions

A Committee, Commission or Advisory Board is created by the City Council to give advice and perform such other functions as prescribed by the City Council. This also includes task forces, informal committees, or working groups formed by City Council resolution for short periods of time or for specific purposes. City of Airway Heights’ commissions, committees, and boards provide an invaluable service to the City. Their advice on a wide variety of subjects aids the Council members in the decision – making process.

Effective citizen participation is an invaluable tool for local government, and City advisory bodies originate from different sources. Some are established by ordinance while others are established by resolution or motion of the City Council. It is at the discretion of the Council as to whether or not any advisory body should be established, other than those required by State law. City of Airway Heights advisory bodies bring together citizen viewpoints which might not otherwise be heard. The City welcomes persons of wide-ranging interests who want to participate in public service but not compete for public office, to become involved in governmental commissions, committees and task forces.
