Boards and Commissions

Cayce citizens have an opportunity to actively participate in running the city through their services on a number of advisory boards, committees and commissions. These groups help shape and carry out policy. Some committees require that one or more individuals have specific experience, others simply need persons who possess the desire and commitment to serve. A Cayce staff member works with each board to help it conduct business. Each board has regular meeting days and times, although they may be altered by holidays. These meetings are open to the public and are held at the City Hall Complex, 1800 12th Street Extension. Meeting schedules and schedule changes are announced on the city's web site and posted at City Hall.

You may obtain a copy of the application by calling City Hall at 803-796-9020 or download potential member application form.
