The purpose of the Community Engagement Task Force is to provide strategic direction, advice and recommendations to the Governing Body on all aspects related to community engagement. This includes marketing and public communications, engagement opportunities, inclusivity, diversity and employee recruitment and retention.

Eleven people make up the task force including representatives from the local business community, each of the City's wards, one Councilmember and the Mayor. The task force will create a final report with their findings. The report will include an executive summary, a deep dive into each of the findings and multiple options and recommendations for the Governing Body to consider in July 2022.
