The City of Edgewater has several volunteer Boards and Commissions that provide a very valuable service to the City. The City knows that without these volunteers, these functions would be an impossible task for the Council and staff.
You can make a difference in the City you live in. We have multiple opportunities for you to participate in your local government. Most of the boards and commissions take a minimal amount of time but have a huge payoff.
Please visit the links on the left to find information on all of the Boards and Commissions that Edgewater currently has. If you are interested in serving on any of these Boards or Commissions, please download an application or visit the City Clerk's office at 2401 Sheridan Boulevard.
The City Council establishes boards and commissions by ordinance. The ordinance establishing any board or commission prescribes its powers and duties; specifies its duty to report to the City Council or City Manager as appropriate, and identifies the department head who will act as the board or commission's liaison. All boards and commissions have powers and duties that are advisory only, except as otherwise provided by law. Except as otherwise required by the City Charter, all board and commission members are appointed by the Mayor. Qualifications are as follows:
