The Town of Garner has four Boards, Commissions and Committees. Each is unique in its size, meeting schedule, and specific function; however, the overall mission is the same. Come be a part of the movement!
Find your place to serve and share your ideas, skills and concerns on topics from community appearance to land use initiatives. Your ideas and opinions are important and your willingness to serve on a Town Board/Commission/Committee may be the avenue where you feel led to volunteer, so together, we can continue to work to make “Garner . . . A Great Place to Be!”
Applications are being accepted for vacancies on the Planning Commission, Board of Adjustment, Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Advisory Board and the Senior Citizen’s Advisory Committee.
The Town of Garner appoints citizens to serve on a number of advisory boards and commissions. Citizens who serve on these boards and commissions perform a community service using their skills, interests and initiatives to make a difference.
