Boards & Commissions

The City of Bridgeton is fortunate to have the many volunteers serving on our Boards and Commissions. There are 13 active city boards and commissions. These commissions are staffed with 115 unpaid volunteers. Of these commissions, only four are required by state statute. 

Appointments are made by the Mayor and are approved by the City Council. With the exception of two commissions, appointments are made for two-year terms. The appointments for the Board of Adjustment is for five years and the Industrial Development Authority for six years. The Bridgeton City Charter states that commissioners can serve three consecutive two-year terms.
