Check out the annotated agenda onthe agenda page to see the minutes of what occurred.

The agenda sets a roadmap for discussion for each Council meeting and lists a summary of every action up for debate and adoption.  The agenda contains a list of items – each with a description of the recommended action and the contact information for the sponsoring elected official, commission, or city department.
