Citizen Councils

Community and Government Cooperation

Public participation in government decision-making is a foundation of democracy.  A great way to be a part of your community is to volunteer and serve on one of the County's boards, commissions, councils, and committees.  Except where noted, all boards and committees are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.

These pages have been prepared to describe Okaloosa County's boards, commissions, councils and committees and to explain their roles in our County. For your reference the authority, member requirements, meeting information, and liaison departments' contact information have been included.

You will find our current policy, a listing of current vacancies and application documentation below for your convenience.
