council members are looking for up to three residents to volunteer to serve on a new communications committee they've created to improve the communication between the city and its residents.
The council unanimously approved the committee Monday, which has a formally written set of policies and procedures outlining its purpose, membership and organization.
The committee will be comprised of three residents and two council members with a goal of reviewing the way in which the city communicates with its residents and to address specific situations in which communications are necessary when they arise.
Many residents about feeling as if the city was not doing a good job of communicating well with its residents. They requested that the city evaluate the way it communicates with residents.
City Manager Shane Reeside said officials are requesting submission of a resume and a letter of interest to apply for one of the three resident positions on the committee.
Assistant City Manager and City Clerk Matthew Tepper said the posting for the position was put on the city's website last month after council finalized their wishes about the committee.
Officials are hopeful to have the committee together by the March council meeting so it may begin meeting and delving into the review.
