Boards and Commissions
Irmo citizens have an opportunity to actively participate in running the Town through their services on Town Boards, Committees and Commissions. These groups help shape and carry out policy. An Irmo staff member works with each board to help it conduct business.
Each board has regular meeting days and times, although they may be altered by holidays. These meetings are open to the public and held in the Municipal Building, 7300 Woodrow, Irmo SC 29063. Meeting schedules and times are announced on the Town’s web site and posted at Town Hall. Meeting times for Board, Committees and Commissions are subject to change as needed.
Town Council is responsible for appointing members to these Boards, Committees, and Commissions. The appointment of new members are conducted during Town Council Meetings. Citizens wishing to apply for appointment to an Irmo Board, Committee or Commission, may submit a Volunteer Talent Book Application to the Town Administrator, P. O. Box 406, Irmo, SC 29063.
You may apply online at Volunteer Talent Book or obtain a copy of the application by stopping by Town Hall located at 7300 Woodrow Street, Irmo, SC 29063.
