Advisory commissions will not have standing monthly meetings, but will meet to work on matters specifically assigned by the City Council, either as part of an annual work plan or by separate resolution. Meetings will be noticed in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act, with agendas posted to the Event Calendar on the City's website, at the University Place Library, 3609 Market Place West and on the bulletin board outside City Hall.
