Boards and Commissions

Advisory groups play an essential role in city government. The City Council is supported by various specialized advisory groups who focus on specific issues, like planning and economic development. After studying the issues, these groups make recommendations to the City Council. Sometimes the City Council will approve the recommendations of the group, but at other times, these decisions will only be one of many factors the Council must weigh when making a final decision.
