Cultural Arts Commission Duties 
Mission Statement 
The Cultural Arts Commission receives an annual assignment list from City Council every year. Those assignments may be modified or new assignments added throughout the year by the City Council. Commission agendas are prepared based on the current year's assignments, so each commission can discuss the issues and report back to the Council with recommendations, as appropriate.
