Boards, committees, and commission members aid the governing process by keeping Buncombe County in touch with the ideas and attitudes of its residents. They help provide direction for the allocation of funds, the provision of human services, protection of residents, property and our natural resources. The input of the residents is vitally important to the success of our County.
