Boards and Commissions
The City provides a wide variety of Boards and Commissions, encouraging its members to participate in discussions which affect and shape the future of our City. These Boards and Commissions assist the City in the information gathering and deliberative process. We believe it is not only the right, but the responsibility of interested and capable citizens to become engaged in local government policy by advising the City Manager and City Council on important community-related issues. Several Boards are also delegated with decision-making authority. The public is strongly encouraged to attend and participate in these meetings, or serve on a Board. It is the duty of each Board’s membership to provide feedback and direction to the City Manager, City Departments and/or the City Council on a variety of issues. Serving on a Board or Commission is an excellent way to make a personal contribution to Ashtabula’s growth and can be a rewarding experience for everyone!
