Carson City is blessed with a citizenry that believes in the value and benefits of community service and active public engagement. The men and women who serve the City as volunteers and as members of its boards, committees, and commissions are critical to Carson City’s mission of providing quality services to its residents and to ensuring government processes are open, transparent and inclusive and that our superior quality of life is preserved for present and future generations.
All applicants are required to read and understand Carson City's Board, Committee, and Commission Policies & Procedures (pdf)
Boards, committees, and commissions are created under the authority of the Carson City Charter, Chapter 2.320. They are intended to gather and parse information for the purpose of presenting options and recommendations to the Carson City Board of Supervisors. Unless otherwise directed by the Nevada Revised Statutes, Carson City Charter, Carson City ordinance, resolution of the Board of Supervisors or by order of law such entities are advisory in nature and retain no official independent authority or responsibility.
It is the responsibility of every member of a board, committee, or commission to understand the requirements of the Open Meeting Law. Click here to view the 2015 Public Integrity Laws presentation video.
