Citizen Advisory Boards/Committees

The City of Palm Coast currently has six (6) Volunteer Boards and Committees that advise and make recommendations to City Council and City Administration. In the past, the Boards and Committees were established through an Ordinance; however, new Boards and Committees are now established through Resolutions, which provides for its purpose, responsibilities, powers, staffing and, if applicable, defines qualifications of members and terms for appointed members.

The Beautification and Environmental Advisory Board, Code Enforcement Board, Planning and Land Development Regulation Board, and the Volunteer Firefighters' Pension Fund Board, act in a quasi-judicial manner. The members of these Boards must file a Financial Disclosure Form under Florida Statutes with the Supervisor of Elections upon appointment to one of these Boards.
