Serving on a board, commission or committee is one way members of the public can volunteer and get involved with their city government. The boards, commissions and committees serve mostly in an advisory capacity to the City Council, but some also hear appeals, provide expertise, advocate, receive public concerns, or establish, review and enforce policies and regulations. All appointments to boards, commissions and committees are made by the City Council.
To learn more about a specific advisory board, commission or committee select from the list in the column to the left.
The Richland Municipal Code (RMC) also provides information related to the boards, commissions and committees under Section 2.04.110.
Pursuant to RMC 2.04.120, the procedure for filling vacancies on boards, commissions and committees is available here.
