Boards & Committees

Council-Manager Form of Government


The Town of Indian Trail operates as a council-manager form of government; that is, the Town Council establishes the Town's policies which are then carried out by the Town Manager and Staff.

There are a number of Town Boards and Committees which discuss various Town issues in detail, making recommendations to Town Council on how to proceed on a given topic. Residents who are experienced in pertinent subject matter and who are dedicated to giving their time and experience to address these issues are encouraged to join one of these Boards or Committees.

  • The Planning Board, to review future growth within the Town, and ensure consistency with current plans and regulations. The board typically meets the third Tuesday of every month.
