The membership consists of the Mayor and all Council members. The Committee of the Whole determines which standing committees will review specific issues pending before the Council, including the City Manager’s proposed assignment of issues to the standing committees; receive progress reports from the standing committees on their activities; and hear final reports of the standing committees on specific issues and the standing committees’ recommendations. The Committee of the Whole will not hear staff reports except as requested by Council Members as part of a standing committee report.
Staffing support to the Committee of the Whole is provided by Celia Holderman and Doris Sorum.
