Boards and Commissions

The Board of Supervisors is always looking for people interested in serving their community.

The Cedar County Board of Supervisors is taking applications for various board and commission appointments in the coming year. Cedar County appreciates diversity in these appointments and welcomes all applicants at least 18 years of age. The terms and dates of appointments vary. These are unpaid positions. Some appointments must be balanced on a political party basis. Information on elected boards (e.g. school boards, agricultural extension) can be found on our Elections website.
