City Council Policies & Protocols

In 2013, the City Council & City Manager began the task of establishing a Council Protocol Manual designed to assist the City Council, staff, and others by memorializing existing policies, procedures and the general ways of doing things. Its purpose is also to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Council, staff, and others. The manual should be viewed as an instructive source of guidance so that accepted practices are documented and expectations are clarified. At this early stage, the manual is a work in progress, therefore at this time, sections of policy and protocols will be included below as they are considered and adopted; with a consolidated document coming at a later date when there are a sufficient number of sections to work with.
