Boards and commissions are an essential component of an effective and responsive government. The City of Hartford is always looking for individuals to serve. Individuals can make personal contributions while serving on the boards and commissions. These contributions can impact Hartford communities.
Boards and commissions are either advisory or decision-making. The role of advisory boards and commissions is to provide advice and help. An example of these commissions are on Aging, the Food Policy, and the Parks & Recreation. The Planning & Zoning Commission, the Redevelopment Agency, and the Hartford Parking Authority are examples of decision-making commissions.
