REVIEW AND RECOMMEND
More specifically, City Board members review and make recommendations to City Council on matters within their scope of responsibility. They perform as a citizen's advisory arm of City Council, focusing attention on specific areas of the City. However, certain Boards or Commissions may take final action in prescribed areas. Most importantly, these bodies give the citizenry an opportunity to voice their opinions on City programs and policies.
ASSIST WITH GOAL IDENTIFICATION
One primary function is to assist in the formation of City goals. What do people say they want in their City? How can this be translated into a set of compatible, consistent, long- and short-range City goals? The advisory groups can help feed these goals into the decision-making process, remembering the distinction between wants and needs is a policy decision and therefore, ultimately rests with City Council.
