Annual Report to City Council – Your Council’s governing resolution requires your Council to present an annual report to the City Council each April. The annual report is a summary of your Council’s accomplishments during your term, but which also includes recommendations to your successors. In order to write and organize this report, individual members of your Council, typically in January and February, accept assignments or volunteer to write each of the report’s sections (normally based on 2-4 projects/goals). 


Additionally, by April 2022, your Council must solidify 2-4 goals for your successors. Refer to your Council’s mission statement.

Vice-Chair Sevor reviewed the goals for next year with council which included:

  • Beach Clean up
