(b) There shall be citizen participation in determining needs and interests and in planning, organizing, overseeing, and evaluating adult education programs and services. This participation shall be effected through advisory councils which shall be established to serve particular cities and towns, or combinations of these, or service districts pursuant to the provisions of this chapter.
