Have you ever wanted to be more involved in your community?  Do you want to have a voice in city decision-making?  Would you like to make a difference right here in Westminster?  The city's Boards and Commissions can challenge and engage you in a variety of areas that help to preserve the quality of life you enjoy in your hometown while providing valuable input to the Westminster City Council.
