City of Salem
Boards, Committees, and Commissions


The Salem City Council is made up of eight City Councilors, each elected to represent one of Salem's Wards and the Mayor, who is elected by voters throughout the City. They are volunteers who spend countless hours studying city issues and working to both solve problems and take advantage of the opportunities facing local government.

Over the years, the Council has developed an extensive system of citizen groups established to advise them in specific subject areas, such as, the budget, land use, and social services.

The City currently has 20 boards, commissions, and committees appointed to research and advise the Council on issues in each specifically focused area. Please browse through the links and find a wide variety of information on each board & commission, including current members and membership requirements. Applications are considered active for two years.  Please feel free to contact the City Manager's office at (503) 588-6255 if you have general questions related to Boards & Commissions.

 

It is the City of Salem’s policy to assure that no person shall be discriminated against on the grounds of race, religion, color, sex, marital status, familial status, national origin, age, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and source of income, as provided by Salem Revised Code 97.  The City also fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and related statutes and regulations, in all programs and activities.
