Board, Commission & Committee Application

Members of boards, commissions, or committees provide a positive service that is invaluable to the continued progress of our town. They may advise the Town Council and Administrator on a wide variety of issues by making recommendations on important policy matters.

Serving on a board, commission or committee can be a rewarding experience for community service-minded residents. It is an excellent way to participate in the functioning of local government and to make a personal contribution to the improvement of our community. If we are to have a “government of the people, by the people, for the people," we must have the continued participation of the many dedicated boards, commissions, and committee members. Making local government effective and responsive is everybody's responsibility.

Irmo citizens have an opportunity to actively participate in running the Town through their services on Town Boards, Committees, and Commissions. These groups help shape and carry out policy. An Irmo staff member works with each board to help it conduct business.

Note: Each board, commission, or committee has its own residency requirements, as shown here:  

  • Board of Zoning Appeals & Planning Commission: Town Resident
  • Accommodations Tax Advisory Board: Town resident or owner/employee of an Irmo business in the Hospitality and Lodging Industry
  • Events Committee:  Town resident or owner/employee of a business located in Irmo
  • Okra Strut Commission: Town residents, owner/operator of a business located in Irmo, or be a resident of Lexington Richland School District 5

All commission, committee, and board members must adhere to the following:

  • Members shall not hold public office as an elected official at the time of their appointment or at any other time during their term
  • Each member shall serve at the discretion of the Town Council
  • Members shall serve without compensation throughout the duration of their appointment, but may be reimbursed for applicable expenses incurred on official duty, with authorization from the Town Council.

We consider applications for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, citizenship status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status.
