13 boards, committees you didn’t know Citrus Heights council members serve on

Sentinel staff report–
Each year, Citrus Heights City Council members approve appointments from their own ranks to serve on various boards, commissions, and subcommittees to address local and regional issues like sewer, law enforcement, libraries, air quality, and transportation.

The current five-member city council is made up of Mayor Steve Miller, Vice Mayor Jeannie Bruins, and council members Bret Daniels, Albert Fox, and Jeff Slowey. Although largely known for their role in setting policy and making decisions at the city level, the council members also play a role in shaping regional policy through these appointments.
