Local governments often use a variety of Resident Advisory Groups to help complete the mission of the City. Advisory Groups are valuable to the City and the community.
Members are appointed by City Council or City Manager.
Members may be residents and non-residents; including City staff and Board/Commission members, but may not include City Council members or other elected officials.
Every Task Force has a Staff Liaison appointed by the City Manager.
The Task Force chair and vice-chair are appointed by the City Council or City Manager. Officers can be any Task Force member, including city staff or Staff Liaison.
Task Forces have a limited lifespan and scope. They are formed to study a specific topic or activity, and typically last one year or less.
The primary deliverable is a report to the City Council or City Manager that includes findings and recommendations.
Meetings of Task Forces are not considered public meetings unless designated as such by the City Council. The term “Public Meeting” refers to a meeting that is required to be open to the public by the state Open Meeting Law.
