The City Council appoints citizens to various boards, committees and commissions of the City. These entities take part in the development of programs relating to community affairs, human relations, environment, housing, insurance and pensions, parks, planning and community design, and zoning appeals.
Missouri State law requires each city to have certain boards, such as the Planning and Community Design Commission. Other boards, not required by State law, are established by ordinance. Members are appointed by the Council. They serve without compensation. Advisory boards can take no final action; independent boards act independently of the Council.
