The City Council creates subcommittees as needed to accomplish the work of the Council. Subcommittees are categorized into two categories: Standing and Ad Hoc.
Standing Committees are more permanent in nature and address on-going areas of interest to the City Council. Standing Committees are subject to the Brown Act. Two standing committees currently exists, the City/Schools Issues Committee and the Council Youth Commission Interview Committee.
Ad Hoc Committees (sometimes referred to as Task Forces) are more temporary in nature and focus on a specific topic. Ad Hoc Committees typically last less than a year in nature and are disbanded upon completion of the committee’s work. Ad Hoc Committees and Task Forces may be subject to the Brown Act depending on composition. If an Ad Hoc Committee or Task Force is not subject to the Brown Act, all efforts shall be made to provide as much notice to the public as possible.
