Handbook for Boards and Commissions Members
The Handbook for Boards and Commissions Members was prepared as a reference for those residents who volunteer to serve on our numerous boards and commissions. It is intended to outline information about the organization of Story County as well as the functions of the advisory boards, providing all board/commission members with a resource to successfully fulfill their valued role as a volunteer with Story County.
