Council Committees

These five Committees are composed of two City Council Members, relevant board representatives, and citizen representatives. They are responsible for the in-depth review of issues specific to their assigned topics and the recommendation of an appropriate course of action to City Council based upon their research. Most Committees cover the needs of two departments within the City (for example Public Safety handles topics presented by the Fire Department and Police Department). Topics include, but are not limited to: budget, capital improvements, future projects, and general community development.
