Boards and Commissions
The Village of Mukwonago encourages citizens to take an active interest in their community. Commissions and committees advise the Village Board on policy issues before the Board makes final decisions. Other Boards make final decisions that affect the community and fellow citizens. Commissioners and appointed board and committee members are a critical part of local government. Everybody talks about government, but you can do something about it by serving on a commission or advisory committee.
The following commissions, committees and boards are comprised in full or in part of Village Board-appointed citizen members:
Village Clerk’s Office
