Community Councils may also provide additional information deemed useful, beneficial and helpful to the Commissioners in making decisions which affect their community.

Community Councils can provide leadership and support to the community by assisting with issues related to orderly growth and development as well as resource protection in the area. Community Councils are advisory only and have no taxing or other governmental powers.
