Council Actions

This section contains overviews of some of Craig's actions as a City Councilor.

What City Council does

City Council provides policy guidance, approves expenditures, and hires the City Manager, who runs the day-to-day operations of the thousands of City employees.

Meetings start with public comment, where anyone can speak for up to 3 minutes on any Council agenda item. Next is a discussion of the Manager's Agenda, applications, Resolutions, Orders, Committee Reports, etc.

The Council meets most Mondays, except on holidays. In summer there is only one meeting. Council subcommittees meet as decided by their chairs.
