Standing Committees

The Council operates with a standing committee system. Each committee exercises primary oversight of a specific area of municipal policy as well as those departments and divisions within its purview. Standing committees meet during the two-week period preceding each regular meeting of the full City Council. This period is called a Council cycle. Committees are responsible for evaluating and making recommendations on all matters referred to them.

Learn more about these standing committees, their subject-matter jurisdictions, when they meet, and who serves as members by choosing from the options below:
