City Committees

​City committees are used to gather community input on specific tasks to inform policies and decision-making efforts. Unlike boards or commissions, committees do not generally require a formal application and selection process.


​Board and Commission Appointment Committee

The City Council’s Boards and Commissions Appointments Committee meets on an as-needed basis to consider volunteer applications and vacancies among the City’s 19 advisory boards and commissions.
