Boards and Commissions

Boards and Commissions

Norwalk has formed various Boards and Commissions comprised of volunteers from the community to serve in an advisory capacity to the mayor and city council. Vacancies are created when a member moves permanently from the city or the term ends. The City of Norwalk makes every effort to organize a diversified group of citizens representing gender balance, a variety of ages and interests. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on any Board or Commission, please submit, in writing, your desire to the Mayor at City Hall.
