Advisory Boards & Committees
Thank you for your interest in Highlands County advisory boards and committees. Citizen participation, by way of community input, advice, and/or recommendations regarding matters brought before the Board of County Commissioners for its consideration is important in developing Highlands County’s programs and policies and in providing quality public services to the community. This is an opportunity for residents to get involved in an advisory capacity.
The committee appointment process requires an "Application for Committee Appointments” to be completed, either online and or in paper form and submitted. Additionally, the Policy for Appointed Committees can be accessed at this website.
