Our town government is facilitated by the hard work and dedication of its Board and Commission volunteers. It is these very volunteers whose work and talents help make Wilton such a vibrant community.

The following is a list of Board / Commission positions with vacancies or anticipated upcoming vacancies.  Information about each Board/Commission can be obtained on the webpage for the Board/Commission:
