Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, time-sensitive Board and Commission Meetings will only be held by video conference until further notice. Instructions to participate during a virtual meeting are posted along with each meeting agenda. Please contact the staff liaison of the specific board or commission with any questions.
Boards and commissions are important in that they enable citizens to participate in Austin's government processes. Their activities help shape and influence public policy, because they lend a more diverse viewpoint for the City Council to consider.
