CONSIDER AN UPDATE ON CITY COMMISSIONS (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

This report provides an informational update to the City Council regarding the recent activities of City Commissions. Most of the City Commission meetings except for the Planning Commission were canceled at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Since that time, some of the Commissions were authorized by the City Council to resume meeting so they could address specific needs pertaining to the Commission's focus area. These included the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Commission, the Economic Development Commission, and the Women's Issues Commission, all of which have been meeting regularly.
In summer 2021, the City Council directed that all remaining Commissions shall be reactivated on a rolling as-needed basis starting in September 2021 with meetings conducted digitally or in-person based on the preference of the Commissioners.
