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 are encouraged to join one of these Boards or Committees.
