The City’s various commissions are an interesting and active way to get involved in City government. The commissions discuss important matters in great detail and make recommendations to the City Council. They work closely with City staff on projects large and small that have a great impact on residents and businesses, both now and far into the future. Commissions also help educate the public on issues such as tree preservation, collaborate with other organizations and community groups, and award grants to encourage revitalization, beautification, cultural programs, community assistance programs, and more. If you would like to see what it’s all about, public attendance and input at commission meetings is always welcome and encouraged.
Residents of the City of St. Charles may also be appointed to a City commission.
