Boards & Commissions

Public involvement is fundamental to good government, and service through Jefferson County’s volunteer boards and commissions is an effective way for citizens to provide valuable input and make a positive impact to our community. The Board of County Commissioners appoints more than 300 citizens to serve on boards and commissions covering a wide variety of issues.  

Citizen applications for boards and commissions are always accepted.  However, most open positions are evaluated annually in August and appointments are made in September for staggered terms.  Some boards and commissions require certain knowledge or experience – please reference the individual board pages for more information and any prerequisites.
