Six of the committees will meet in the weeks prior to each month's full board. They are:

An audit committee will meet as needed, and a rules committee is currently working to establish meeting rules for the board. There will also be additional full board meetings to insure items can be considered and responded to in a timely manner.
"We will be moving forward with strong and knowledgeable leadership and membership on each of these committees," said Board of Commissioners Chair David Flynn. "Each chair was carefully chosen because of the depth of knowledge and expertise that he/she brings to the board."
