Social Services Advisory Board

Social Services Advisory Board

The purpose of the Social Services Advisory Board is to establish and recommend a framework that the city government may use to determine guidelines for providing funds to social services agencies that serve the city and the amounts to be allocated to each of these agencies.

The Social Services Advisory Board:
  • Evaluates the social service needs of the city.
  • Evaluates what role the city should play in funding those needs.
  • Establishes guidelines for determining whether a particular activity is a social service in order to determine if city funds should be used to fund the activity.
  • Makes written reports to the governing body as requested.
  • Provides on-going review of all social services funded by the city to determine the effectiveness, quality of service, ongoing needs and other matters the board deems appropriate.
Participate in the social services voluntary donation program by filling out our online form.

The board may be comprised of 15 members.
