BOARDS & COMMITTEES


CITY BOARDS, COMMITTEES, AND COMMISSIONS

Boards, committees, and commissions are designed to give citizens a voice in their government and provide a means of influencing decisions that shape the quality of life for residents. Participation on a board or commission is one of the most effective steps citizens can take in having an active voice in their government.

This page provides background information about the various boards and committees that, together with the Mayor & City Council, make up the governing bodies of the City of Saco. Upcoming board and committee meetings will be listed on our community calendar

We are always seeking residents interested in serving on city boards and ad hoc committees. Some committees are actively seeking new members now, or in other cases you could be placed on a reserve list for future vacancies. If you would like to apply, please visit our board application page.
