Boards and Commissions
City Council encourages resident involvement in City government, relying on dedicated residents to serve the City as a volunteer on various Boards and Commissions.   Through strong community support and participation, Northville provides quality services, creating a desirable community for our citizens.

To attract the most qualified individuals to serve on our Boards and Commissions, vacancies are announced at City Council Meetings, the website, City News, and social media.
