Boards & Committees

Each year, Clearwater County Council appoints elected officials and citizens to over 40 boards and committees. These boards and committees are established by Council through bylaws and may be delegated certain duties such as providing advice to Council on a range of municipal issues that help shape our community. The boards and committees are diverse, independent and impartial. They are made up of dedicated volunteers from across the County with varied skills, backgrounds and experience. Serving on a board or committee is an excellent opportunity to share your skills and experience and to give back to your community.
