Provide increased public input and citizen participation in City government.


More specifically, City Board members review and make recommendations to City Council on matters within their scope of responsibility. They perform as a citizen's advisory arm of City Council, focusing attention on specific areas of the City. However, certain Boards or Commissions may take final action in prescribed areas. Most importantly, these bodies give the citizenry an opportunity to voice their opinions on City programs and policies.


One primary function is to assist in the formation of City goals. What do people say they want in their City? How can this be translated into a set of compatible, consistent, long- and short-range City goals? The advisory groups can help feed these goals into the decision-making process, remembering the distinction between wants and needs is a policy decision and therefore, ultimately rests with City Council.


The advisory bodies must be careful to represent general interests of the City, not special interest groups. Boards, Commissions and Committees must not become involved in the administration or operation of City departments, and should not direct the administrative staff to initiate programs, conduct studies or establish official policy without approval of the City Council and/or the City Manager. Commissioners, however, are encouraged to review and comment on relevant department programs as they affect the community.



City staff liaisons assigned to Boards, Commissions and Committees are available to provide general staff assistance. This includes preparation of agenda materials, general review of department programs and activities, and performance of limited studies. If members have questions or are concerned with particular issues, the City Manager or City staff liaison should be contacted to review the matter.


All meetings of City Boards, Commissions and Committees must be open to the public pursuant to the Ralph M. Brown Act enacted in 1953. The intent of the Act is to ensure that "actions be taken openly and that deliberations be conducted openly." Furthermore, advisory bodies must announce a time, place and date for holding any regular or special meetings.
