McDowell County invites you to participate in your local government by volunteering for a committee or an advisory board. Committees and advisory boards aid in the governing process by keeping McDowell County in touch with our citizens' ideas and preferences. Citizens who volunteer for committees and boards help provide direction for the allocation of funds, the provision of human services, the public's welfare and the stewardship of natural resources.
Some committees and boards are created by the authority of the North Carolina General Statutes. The McDowell County Board of Commissioners has created additional committees and boards for specific areas of service.
Listed below is each of the County's committees and boards. For a committee application, see below. Please contact the Clerk to the Board of Commissioners to receive additional information.
