Effective September 1, 2021, members of the community seeking to comment at Board and Commission meetings will be required to attend in-person. Please contact the staff liaison of the specific board or commission with any questions on how to participate in a meeting.
Boards and commissions are important in that they enable citizens to participate in Austin's government processes. Their activities help shape and influence public policy, because they lend a more diverse viewpoint for the City Council to consider.
