Boards, Commissions, & Committees

Town Boards and Committees

The Watertown Town Council has formed a variety of boards, commissions, and committees to assist the Town in the information gathering and deliberative process. Boards and Commissions are vital to the operation of the Town and ensure public involvement in the governmental process. Several boards are also delegated with decision-making authority. The public is strongly encouraged to attend and participate in these meetings, or serve as a board member or commissioner. It is the duty of each boards membership to provide feedback and direction to Town Departments or the Town Council on a variety of issues.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend public meetings of the Town's Boards and Commissions and serve as members.

Meeting dates, times and locations vary, and are available on individual web pages.
