This cross-section of community leaders acts as a liaison between the community, the Board of Public Utilities, and management staff of City Utilities.

The Council also acts as a representative for utility customers, encouraging participation in the utility’s decision-making process and bringing recommendations to the Board of Public Utilities to better serve our customers.
