As the legislative body of the city, the City Council usually meets once every month to exercise general and specific powers delegated by state statute. The City Council votes on all proposed loans, grants, bond issues, land acquisitions and sales, zoning changes, traffic control issues, mayoral appointees, and other financial appropriations.

The 19 standing committees work with individual departments on the execution of city activities, and review proposed ordinances, resolutions and orders before they are voted on by the full council.
The next City Council Meeting is Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 10:00am.
