What Is the Stormwater Advisory Commission?

The Commission is formed of seven citizen volunteers appointed by the Town Council. The Commission meets monthly. All meetings are open public meetings. Agendas are advertised, and minutes are kept to document the Commission’s deliberations. Seats on the Commission are advertised and filled annually.
