The Policy Committee is a sub-committee of the City Council that reviews and makes recommendations on matters of the internal operations of the city government. The committee offers oversight and guidance by providing policy-level direction and input on policy-specific items such as land use; committee appointments; or proposed changes to the municipal code, use policy, or other items that require direction and input. Items that have a policy component that is related to public infrastructure or the execution of a specific Capital Improvement Project will be directed to the Infrastructure Committee.

Recommendations made by the Policy Committee may also be brought forward to the full City Council for approval if directed by the Committee.
