Boards & Commissions

Council Chambers ChairsCitizen participation is an integral part of the governmental process in Oak Harbor. Advisory boards and commissions provide advantages, such as in-depth examination of issues or a communication channel between elected officials and the community, bringing a broad range of ideas and expertise to public decision-making, assisting in the resolution of conflicts, and providing training for new leaders.

The City of Oak Harbor currently has 12 active boards, commissions, and committees to which members of the community are appointed by either the Mayor. In most cases, bylaws do require members to reside or own a business within the city limits.
