Boards, Committees, Commissions, and Authorities

In our democracy, government is of the people, by the people and for the people. That is why citizen participation in local government is so essential. Local government is the form of government closest to us in our everyday lives, and the one we are most able to influence. Advisory and decision bodies play a very important role in county government.

The Rockbridge County Board of Supervisors, from time to time, makes appointments to Boards, Committees, Commissions, and Authorities which work to serve the citizens of Rockbridge County in various capacities.
