Boards, Authorities, and Commissions


Boards, authorities, and commissions are an established feature of municipal government which offers citizens an extraordinary opportunity to participate in a city’s government affairs. Their activities have helped to shape or influence public policy in many areas. The City of West Point has boards, authorities and commissions that endeavor to reflect the varied interests of West Point citizenry. Several of the City’s boards and commissions are required and established by state law, while others result from provisions of the City Charter or form local ordinances. They address such subjects as planning, zoning, development and parks and recreation. Although many boards, authorities and commissions are advisory, their influence and value can be significant. They make recommendations on a wide range of topics that come before the City Council. Several boards and commissions are quasi-judicial, which means the Council has delegated some portion of its legislative authority to a citizen board.
