Commissions

Every year, 40 community-minded and passionate individuals serve on the City’s commissions. Our commissioners provide valuable leadership to the City through their active participation on the Covington Economic Development Council and the Arts, Human Services, Parks and Recreation, and Planning Commissions.

Now is your chance to join this group of concerned and dedicated citizens who play a significant role in city government.

Commission members participate in advisory, advocacy, and planning activities.
