Council resource toolbox

The council resource toolbox is designed to assist council members and officers to best carry out their office duties and serve the constituents that they represent.

The council meets the fourth Thursday of every month except for November and December when they meet on the third Thursday of the month. Meetings begin at 6 p.m. in the Courthouse Annex meeting room.
