Standing Committees

City council operates under a committee system with 8 standing committees. The president of council is an ex-officio member of all standing committees. Committee Chairs and members are appointed by the President of Council.

Committees hold open meetings to discuss the issues before them and make reports and recommendations to the full body of council. The committees’ recommendations usually are adopted by council. Therefore, citizens wishing to be heard on issues are encouraged to voice their concerns at the appropriate committee meetings.
