Boards 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.


The purpose of the City of Saco Volunteer program is to connect City of Saco residents with municipal departments through active volunteer participation. Volunteers will benefit by having a greater understanding of local government and the opportunity to make a difference.
