Boards and Commissions
Become Part of Red Wing’s Boards and Commissions
Volunteers who serve on any one of the formal Boards and Commissions work to execute the City Council’s broad visions. In addition, there are many groups and individuals who volunteer their time to help with city functions, facilities, and events. There are also established groups of volunteers who help support the parks, Public Library, and the Sheldon Performing Arts Theatre.According to City Council Administrator Kay Kuhlmann, “The volunteerism we see just in city government is a great indication that people in the community truly care about the quality of life here and are willing to invest their time and effort to contribute. Red Wing is really fortunate to have so many individuals in the community who are willing to commit their time and talents here.” Click here to volunteer.

Commission and board members must live within the city limits during their service on the advisory body unless otherwise noted. The mayor makes recommendations based upon qualifications, community service, and experience. Approval of those recommendations is required by the City Council.
Although volunteers are already in place in many aspects of the city organization, board members and commissioners are always needed.
