Council appoints committees to examine and review topics or issues that impact citizens and make recommendations.
Standing committees facilitate the decision making process for Council. They are comprised of Council members who participate in discussions and send their recommendations to Council for final decisions.
Advisory committees make recommendations related to specific topics and/or areas of interest. Most advisory committees have Council members and citizen representatives. The recommendations of an advisory committee are considered by the General Committee and then sent to City Council for final decisions.
