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.

Do you want to be involved in local government? We need volunteers to assist in promoting good government and the effective and efficient delivery of services. The City Council is currently seeking applicants to serve on the following advisory commissions:

  • Arena Commission  (for School District and Skating Club representatives)
