Boards & Committees

Every year, Clearwater County Council appoints elected officials and community members to serve on more than 40 diverse boards and committees. These crucial bodies are established through Council bylaws and may be entrusted with specific responsibilities, including offering valuable advice to Council on a wide range of municipal issues that significantly impact our community. Our boards and committees are characterized by their diversity, independence, and impartiality, composed of dedicated volunteers hailing from various corners of the County, each bringing a unique set of skills, backgrounds, and experiences. 

Serving on one of these boards or committees is an exceptional opportunity to contribute your skills and experience while giving back to your community. As part of our commitment to community involvement, public members are compensated in accordance with Council's Public Member Remuneration Policy. This compensation covers their time and any incidental out-of-pocket expenses incurred in their participation on these boards and committees. These boards and committees have varying commitments and meeting frequencies, with some meeting annually, some monthly, and others meeting as required.
