Mayor Emily Styron has announced twelve new appointments and the Zionsville Town Council has announced six new appointments to Town of Zionsville boards, commissions and committees. These individuals give their time and expertise for the benefit of the community. 

During her time in office, Mayor Emily Styron has made it a priority to use the Town’s boards and commissions as a way to engage constituents in the civic process. “A focus of mine has been to add more diversity to Zionsville’s 30+ boards, commissions and committees,” said Mayor Emily Styron. “Despite the progress we have made, we do still have a way to go. I want to thank the many citizens who express their interest in serving by filling out the interest form on our website and by reaching out to me and to Town Council.
