Get involved in your city

We have about 30 committees, commissions and boards that provide input to the City Council and help enhance Wauwatosa. Some of these groups are advisory, some are quasi-judicial and some are activity-oriented. Citizen members bring a broad and invaluable perspective of ideas, backgrounds and professional expertise.

Public involvement is crucial to our decision-making process, and these appointed advisory bodies are an important and valued part of our government. By advising the City Council and staff, bringing new ideas to the table, and representing all of the diverse elements of our community, members of our boards, commissions, and committees help us make the best, most informed decisions possible, for the benefit of the entire community.

The Mayor, by ordinance or statute, is responsible for appointing citizen members to serve on boards, commissions and committees. All appointments are confirmed by the Common Council.
