As well as two meeting each month (usually the first and possibly third Monday), the Council operates a Finance Committee, an Open Spaces Committee, and a Buildings Committee.

The Finance Committee meets quarterly, usually later in the month due to the extra work required in preparing for these following a full Council meeting.

The Open Spaces and Buildings Committees meet at least twice a year, and at other times as pertinent to the projects in progress.

A committee discusses business pertinent to its area of specialization and passes pending decisions back to the full Council for resolution.
