Interested in Volunteering on a Village Committee?
Every April the Rye Brook Village Board considers filling vacancies and/or renewing expired terms for the volunteers on the various boards, commissions and committees. These are all volunteer positions where residents dedicate their time for the benefit of the community. Most boards, commissions and committees meet once per month in the evening at Rye Brook Village Hall.
Please note that the number of interested residents may exceed the number of available vacancies, but all expressions of interest to serve on a committee will be kept on file for any future openings.
