Workshops and Meetings
Proposals for action are brought to the Council by residents, staff and councilors themselves.
The Council usually reviews proposals at workshops, which are open to the public, before they are placed on the agenda of a regular Council meeting.
At the Council meeting, residents and staff may give input or report on agenda items. The Council then discusses and either approves, modifies or rejects the item. The City Manager and staff then carry out the Council's decisions.
How the City is Governed
The citizens, commissions, boards, and committees provide input to the Mayor and Council, who make the decisions. The City Staff implement those decisions.
