Council meets twice monthly - the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 7:30 p.m. Other special called meetings may be called at any time, but usually are called with at least a 24 hour notice. Meetings include four quarterly Neighborhood Meetings.
Council members' collective understanding of community needs, knowledge of cross-governmental issues and their vision of the future provides the foundation for basic neighborhood-level services and development of future citywide plans. City Council develops a strategic plan which sets forth program goals and objectives, and lays out action steps for the City administration in order to achieve Council's goals. City Council elections are held every two years and terms are staggered for five Council members elected at large to four-year terms.
