Volunteer for Town Committees & Boards for 2021-2022

Each year in June, the Town Council begins the process of seeking volunteers for the Town’s committees and filling vacancies on the Town’s boards and commission.  We encourage you to consider volunteering for one of these bodies so we can involve as many residents as possible in Town affairs.

  • Climate and Environment: Inspires and facilitates energy conservation and environmental stewardship by the Town and its residents.
  • Community Relations: Encourages a strong sense of neighborliness through community activities and communications.
  • Land Use: Guides building and redevelopment within the Town using available planning tools.
  • Long-Range Planning: Identifies emerging issues that require longer-term planning and analysis and monitors activities in county and state government likely to impact our Town. 
  • Public Services: Advocates for high-quality Town services for our residents.
  • Racial Justice Special Committee: Creates programs and initiatives to help residents understand and explore the Town’s history on racial justice issues and to guide the Town’s future role in addressing these issues.
  • Elections Board (one vacancy): Oversees all Town elections, including making appropriate provisions for nominations, printing ballots, appointing tellers and/or judges and supervising the polls.
  • Ethics Commission (one vacancy): Receives, verifies, and maintains all financial disclosure forms required by the State of Maryland. 
  • Water Board (one vacancy): Hears requests by property owners who have had a water drainage plan denied by the Town.

If you are interested in volunteering to serve on any of the Town’s committees, boards, or commission, please submit a brief note to the Town Office by June 25, 2021.   Your correspondence may be submitted by e-mail to and should include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and a few sentences about why you would like to serve on that particular body. 

The Town Council extends a special thanks to all of you who have served on one of these bodies over the past year.  The dedication of your time and talents provides an invaluable resource to the Town and continues to strengthen and improve our community.
