County boards and commissions serve in either advisory, legislative, or administrative capacities. They consist of county residents and occasionally county staff or elected officials. County boards and commissions assist local government through citizen participation and leadership. County boards also facilitate the public comment process in local governance.
Board and commission meeting agendas are posted in the City/County Complex 48 business hours in advance. Meeting locations and times may change. Please call the board contact number or the Park County Commission/DeAnn Weickum at 406-222-4106 to confirm meeting information.
Most board and commission member terms run on a calendar year cycle. Applications are accepted for new members in anticipation of expiring terms. A notice requesting member applications is published in the Livingston Enterprise, on the Park County website, and in the City/County Complex. The call for members is open for one month usually in late fall (sometimes longer for newly created boards). An applicant interview may be part of the selection process.
