Metropolitan Council Committees

Standing Council Committees


Council members serve on special Council Committees which meet regularly and make recommendations to the full Council. The public is encouraged to attend the Council and committee meetings and hearings and express their points of view on matters before the Council. The council also has citizen advisory committees on specific topics.

Standing Council Committee meetings are the best place to provide comment on specific agenda items. To provide testimony at a committee meeting, contact the committee’s recording secretary.
