Boards, Commissions & Committees

Boards, commissions, and committees involve residents of the City of Palacios who volunteer their time and expertise for the benefit of the community by setting policy, aiding fellow citizens, and planning for Palacios’ future. 

The City of Palacios has *seven* active advisory boards and committees, each set up to perform specific functions. In addition, task forces and ad-hoc committees may be created to address particular issues

The City Council appoints members of the boards and committees.  All positions are voluntary and members are not compensated for their time.  However, the individuals who serve on the boards and committees provide an invaluable service to the City.  Their advice and expertise on a wide range of topics assist the City Council in its decision-making process.

Citizen participation in local government is essential if we are to maintain the quality of life we enjoy in Palacios.  Opportunities exist for citizen volunteers to work in harmony with the government by serving on advisory boards.

All board and committee meetings are open to the public pursuant to the Texas open meeting law.  Sufficient notice must be given to the public before a meeting is called.  All proceedings are matters of public record.
