Advisory Groups

In an effort to encourage the future prosperity and responsible growth of the Town of Oakland, the following groups were formed by caring and dedicated members of our beloved community. These groups have accepted an invitation to come together and meet with the Mayor and Board of Aldermen on a regular basis in order to brainstorm, therefore developing goals and actions plans with that end in mind.

In addition, the Oakland Municipality currently consults with and refers to the invaluable resources of the Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) when planning its future growth and infrastructure.
