We need you! The City believes it is important to have an informed and engaged citizenry and therefore encourages citizen input and participation. As a result, we have several advisory boards, commissions, and committees to give residents an insight and a voice on important community issues. Board and Committee members provide a valuable service to our community by providing input into our decision-making process. The recommendations, decisions and hard work of these boards and committees can be seen everyday throughout our community.
By serving on a board or committee, you will be acting as an advisor to the Lake Wales City Commission on a variety of subjects, including code enforcement, the airport, the Depot Museum Complex, housing, planning and zoning, historic preservation, parks and recreation, lakes, and community relations. The City, in turn, benefits from your expertise and experience.
Every board and committee has a defined statement of purpose and function. The responsibilities terms of office, membership size, and meeting schedules vary for each board and are defined by a specific ordinance. All meetings are open to the public.
