Town Committees

Park Picture for Committee Page - Copy
The Town of Somerset has a proud heritage of Committees comprising of volunteer Somerset residents dating back to its founding with the first Committee, the Audit Committee, & our one & only Board, the Board of Supervisors of Elections, enshrined in the Town Charter. All other Committees are established by the Mayor with the approval of the Town Council. These Committees focus on a variety of interests to the Town that help determine their scope & activities. The Committees are governed by rules set forth in both the Town Charter & the Town Code of Ordinances.

Somerset currently has fourteen active Committees & one active Board:
