Committees and Commissions

Are you interested in getting involved in local government and giving back to your community?

County government includes a number of committees, commissions, and boards which range from specific, targeted focuses to long-term broad-based jurisdictional responsibilities.  Committees represent a wide variety of interests, including health care, criminal justice, planning, housing, Community Advisory Boards for County Service Areas, and more. 

Elected officials, including County Supervisors, sit on some of these committees, while others are comprised of community members who have an interest in local government. Residents of Shasta County are invited to participate within the community through membership on these boards.

This page contains information to assist you in participating.  Thank you for your interest in serving your community!

County commissions, committees, and boards can be comprised of members who are either elected, appointed, or a mixture of both.  All of these bodies follow procedures as laid out in federal or state law, county ordinance, and their own bylaws.
