Town Committees

One of the best ways to get involved in making our Town a better place is to join a committee that shares your interests. You can get involved as a committee member, as a volunteer, or on specific projects. If you have ideas that you would like to see realized, bringing your ideas to the appropriate committee is the best way to sound out your idea and get support for it.
