Home / Your Government / White City Council / Council Committees

The Town of White City conducts its business through a committee structure. There are four separate council committees who dig into particular issues or topics. The committee structure also includes advisory groups; advisory groups are made up of community members who give information and advice to council committees about a particular issue or topic. Once a council committee has considered information from town staff and advisory groups, a recommended course of action is prepared for council to consider. The recommendation is forwarded to all of council for an official decision at a regular or special council meeting.
