Boards & Commissions

Boards, Commissions, Authorities & Committees Members

The City of Portage relies upon citizen participation on many Boards and Commissions that help to serve the community.  The advice received from these groups assists the City Council and City Administration in making Portage A Natural Place to Move!  These citizens provide the talent and experience needed to meet the diverse challenges facing the community.  

Portage citizens interested in becoming members of an advisory board or commission must be registered voters of the City of Portage to be eligible for appointment by City Council. Candidates are interviewed and selected by City Council. The meeting times and responsibilities of each of the Boards and Commissions vary and can be found on the respective Board, Commission, Authority, and Committee subpages.

You may also contact the Office of the City Clerk for details related to the various Boards, Commissions and Authorities.
