Public Advisory Boards

Town of Afton Volunteer Boards & Committees

Boards and Committees fulfill an important role in Town government by evaluating issues which affect our community and making recommendations to the Town Council for needed action. Although most Boards/Committees are advisory in nature, a few are decision-making entities. The value of these bodies is a direct reflection of the interest and dedication of our citizens in making Afton a better place to live, and we encourage you to apply for appointment to any Board/Committee in which you may be interested. Please contact the Town Clerk directly should you have any interest.
