Get Involved in Local Government
Every day, decisions made by Allegany County government officials affect you. Now is a great time to get involved. The Board of County Commissioners has established many boards, commissions, and committees that offer Allegany County citizens an avenue to actively participate in local government.
These boards deal with health and welfare, social programs, environmental issues, agricultural preservations, economic development, tourism, architectural review, women's issues, elderly issues, and others.
The Commissioners appoint citizens to more than 30 different committees/boards. Vacancies on these advisory boards are posted as the terms are fulfilled. Those interested in serving go through an application and selection process.
