Commissions & Committees


The City Council is assisted by three commissions: the Community Services Commission, the Investment Advisory Commission, and the Planning and Transportation Commission. Commissioners:

  • advise the City Council and the City Manager on matters within their area of responsibility and interest;
  • help focus attention on specific issues and problems within their scope of responsibilities, and recommend action and alternatives for Council consideration;
  • act as channels of communication among City government, the general public, and interest groups;
  • reconcile contradictory viewpoints and provide direction toward achievement of citywide goals and objectives;
  • balance community wants with municipal responsibility and resources.

Members of each commission are appointed by the City Council from a pool of applicants. Each council member nominates one member for each commission, and each nomination must then be ratified by a majority vote of the City Council. All commissioners serve at the pleasure of the City Council, and any individual commissioner may be removed at any time by a simple majority of the City Council, without cause.
