The City Council's advisory bodies are the Planning Commission and the Community Activities Commission. The membership of these bodies is comprised of members appointed by the Mayor upon confirmation of the City Council.
The City Council is also advised by several Council sub-committees, which regularly meet on a monthly basis and provide recommendations to the City Council on routine, special, and extraordinary matters. These sub-committees are made up of two Council Members and staff members to advise as needed.
The currently active Council sub-committees are:
- Personnel Committee (regular meetings held 1st and 3rd Mondays at 8:00 p.m.)
- Public Works Committee (regular meetings held 3rd Thursday of each month at 4:00 p.m.)
- Real Estate Committee (regular meetings held 3rd Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m.)
- Code Enforcement & Public Safety Committee (regular meetings held 3rd Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.)
The Oversight Board is an independent Board that oversees the dissolution of the City's redevelopment agency (the City acts as the successor to the redevelopment agency, and is referred to as "Successor Agency") and is made up of appointees from the Mayor, the City, and various special taxing districts including schools, utilities, and the County.
