About the Commission

The Napa County Veterans' Commission was established pursuant to Napa County Resolution Number 2018-16.  The Resolution was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on January 30, 2018.

The purpose of the Napa County Veterans’ Commission is to advise the Napa County Board of Supervisors about issues affecting those who served in the military and their families and to provide a forum for public input regarding related issues. The Commission shall educate and raise awareness to the public, county staff and the County Board of Supervisors regarding issues affecting Veterans and their families, including, but not limited to veterans’ physical and mental health, transportation, benefits, and ways to generally improve the lives of veterans. Further, the Veterans’ Commission will make recommendations to the Board of Supervisor’s Legislative Subcommittee regarding needed changes in State law for incorporation into the County’s legislative platform.

The Veterans’ Commission may authorize the creation of ad hoc committees on special subjects from time to time so that Veterans’ Commission members having the necessary expertise to conduct field, plan or other specialized reviews may investigate, observe, review or otherwise study and report back their observations and conclusions to the full Veterans’ Commission for possible further action. 

Commission Members

The Commission has 9 members who serve for four year terms. One (1) representative from each member of the Board of Supervisors, which whenever possible shall be a veteran.  Four (4) representatives from the community at large, who fulfill any of the following categories: they are local veterans, local family members of veterans, and members of local organizations serving the needs of veterans but with the ultimate goal of having the majority of the commissioners serving be veterans.

Public Comment

The Commission welcomes the opportunity to hear from the public. If you have an issue that you would like to have addressed, please join us at any of our scheduled meetings.
