Council Standing Committees

The City Council currently has two standing committees which are the Finance Committee and Internal Affairs Committee, each comprised of three Councilmembers. These two committees delve into items referred to them for review and possible recommendations.  Recommendations are then forwarded back to the full Council for consideration and possible action.
