Many of the final decisions or actions within an MSTU begin with groups of citizens volunteering their time on one of the citizen advisory boards. Each board is created by state statute, county ordinance or resolution of the Board of County Commissioners and tasked with reviewing and researching a topic, hearing appeals or making recommendations. Citizens wishing to learn more about Marion County's 23 citizen advisory boards may call the commission office at 352-438-2323 or visit the general information web page here.
