Our residents take pride in their community and in the spirit of volunteerism. Volunteers are an important and integral part of our City operations. The City of Centerville has several ways for volunteers to become involved:

CIVIC Municipal Volunteer Program

volunteer at computer The City of Centerville's municipal volunteer program, Citizens InVolved in Centerville  (CIVIC), assists the city in its efforts to provide superior services to its residents, and extends opportunities for citizens to participate in their local government and community. The CIVIC Municipal Volunteer Program was established in 1984 to promote citizen participation in the expansion, enhancement and delivery of quality services to the residents of Centerville. More than 200 residents volunteer their time, energy and talent to help make Centerville a better place to live and work, while helping the city save time, resources and staff.

The goals of CIVIC are to:

  • Encourage and provide opportunities for citizens to participate in City government and in their community.
  • Enhance City services by utilizing volunteers to supplement the efforts of City staff.
  • Promote and assist citizen understanding of municipal problems, issues, programs and city operations.
  • Ensure a positive working experience for each volunteer and the successful completion of the job assigned to each volunteer.
  • Provide recognition of each volunteer's contribution.

There are a number of citizen committees, boards, commissions, and task forces that advise and make recommendations to the City Council and/or City staff.
