Committee of the Whole Meetings are on the second Thursday of the month at 6:00pm. The purpose of these meetings is to review and evaluate staff recommendations and supporting documentation. No formal action can be taken at the committee level. There are a few additional committees, including Audit and Stormwater, which meet as needed.

Special Meetings

Public Hearings

As a part of the planning process of a special project or issue, the Board may conduct public hearings. The purpose of these meetings is to provide residents with information on a specific topic and seek input.
