FAQ Topic: Public meetings

How do I apply to serve on a board or commission?

Without the dedication of the many volunteers who serve on our boards and commissions, the City would be unable to function. These volunteers help to make Effingham a great place to live, work, and play. If you are interested in serving, contact the City Clerk and find out what openings are available.

Can I attend board and commission meetings?

Yes. Board and commission meetings are open to the public. You can attend and provide input during the public comment period of the meeting. Sometimes all or part of a meeting may be held in closed session (no public allowed) if the item being discussed is within the guidelines of state statutes.

When do boards and commissions meet?

Effingham’s 12 boards and commissions meet at various times throughout the year. To find when they meet, select the group you are interested in and the meeting is listed.

When does the City Council meet?

The City Council meets formally on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 5 p.m. Find specific meetings and agendas online.
