Advisory boards offer residents the opportunity to help guide the County government’s decision-making process.

All advisory board meetings are open to the public and meeting dates are posted on the Manatee County Government Calendar. You are encouraged to attend a meeting to learn more about the work of the board in which you are interested.
 

Manatee County advisory boards cover a wide range of topics such as affordable housing, children's services, the environment, health care, tourism, planning and development, historical preservation and more.
