Commission Assignments
At the beginning of each fiscal year, the City Council directs the City’s commissions to focus attention on specific work assignments. Those assignments may be modified or new assignments added throughout the year by the City Council. Commission agendas are prepared based on the current year's assignments, so each commission can discuss the issues and report back to the Council with recommendations, as appropriate.
