Join a Board or Commission

The Boards and Commissions provide the Mayor and Council with informed public opinions, thoughts and ideas that shape the city.

Vacancies on Boards and Commissions are announced in each issue of Rockville Reports. Anyone employed by or under contract to the city is not eligible to serve on a board or commission. Individuals may serve on only one board or commission at a given time (with the exception of ad hoc committees or task forces) to give as many residents as possible the opportunity to participate.

For questions or more information contact the City Clerk's Office at 240-314-8280.
