Advisory Boards

The East Grand Rapids City Commission is assisted in its decision making process by several appointed advisory boards. These commissions work with citizens and staff to research, debate, and solve problems or issues. Some commissions have the authority to approve certain items, while others forward issues to the City Commission for final determination. Find out about the various advisory boards from the links on the left.

All meetings are open to the public.
