How They Function....
  • The City Clerk's Office recruits residents to the BCCs and the City Council appoints them.
  • The City Attorney's Office provides legal counsel to the Advisory Bodies and their Staff Liaisons.
  • The Staff Liaisons are City employees, who coordinate agenda items, record minutes, and manage items for their meetings.
  • The BCCs meet at regularly scheduled times and the public is invited to come.
  • They have the responsibility of recommending or not recommending to Council issues that impact the City.
