The Council's standing special committees consist of two Councilmembers and provide an opportunity for the Council to give input to City staff on important matters before they are considered by the full Council.
From time to time, the Council also creates committees and task forces dedicated to a specific issue. These committees consist of one or two councilmembers, citizen representatives from the community, and, as appropriate, representatives from the City's Boards and Commissions.
