Responsibilities in the River Valley Region

About the Council

The River Valley Regional Council is composed of representatives from our 16 counties and 35 cities. The council is responsible for establishing policy guidance for the agency, adopting an annual work program and budget, and employing an executive director. Council make-up is a combination of locally elected officials, state appointments and private industry appointments to make sure we have broad and comprehensive guidance on the work we do.  

The Regional Council meetings are usually held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the Marion County Commissioner’s Office (100 Burkhalter Avenue, Buena Vista), unless otherwise posted. Due to the pandemic, meetings have been held via ZOOM meeting. Please contact the RVRC for more information regarding virtual meeting accessibility.
