The commission typically meets three days a month for two regular and one committee of the whole meeting. The regular commission meeting can also include an agenda review and public forum meeting.
- Committee of the whole meetings are held for commissioners to discuss items before they are brought to a regular commission meeting for a vote. Committee of the whole meetings begin at 9 a.m. usually on the second Thursday of each month.
- Regular commission meetings, where commissioners discuss and vote on agenda items, are held twice a month: One is usually scheduled for a morning and one in the evening. These meetings are generally held at 5:30 p.m. on first Thursday and 9 a.m. on the third Thursday of a month.
- A public forum is held before each regular commission meeting at either 8:30 a.m. or 4:30 p.m., where the public is invited to attend and speak on the topic of their choice for two to three minutes.
- Agenda review, where the commission reviews the items on an evening's regular commission meeting agenda with staff, is held at 9 a.m. on the first Thursday of the month.
