Regional Council

The River Valley Regional Council is composed of representatives from our 16 counties and 35 cities. The council is repsonsible for establishing policy guidance for the agency, adopting an annual work program and budget, and employing an executive director.


The Regional Council meetings are 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. Meetings are not scheduled for the months of July and December. The May 23, 2018 council meeting will be the annual Legislative Luncheon. It will be held at the Josh Gibson Center located at 116 Rogers Street, Buena Vista.


Individual committees have been formed within the council related to transportation, economic development, environmental, and planning issues that affect our region. The committeess meet as needed to review, discuss, make decisions on related projects, and report their findings back to the full council.
