City Council Committees

The City Council is organized into seven standing committees. The committee's were established to review and analyze City policies and programs and make necessary recommendations back to the full Council. Each committee consists of three Councilmembers and each Councilmember is appointed chairperson of at least one of the committees.

Each committee establishes its own meeting schedule, which is generally once per month. Committee meetings are usually held in Conference Room A, located in City Hall North, 1600 Truxtun Ave in downtown Bakersfield. Committee meetings are open to the public and are normally held at 12 p.m. Locations and time are subject to change and are noticed accordingly. 

Council Committee Agendas are available in the City of Bakersfield's Laserfiche Document Management Application.  Please make sure you have all pop-up blockers disabled before trying to access documents from this area of the website.
