Who is the City Council?
The City Council is the legislative branch and policy making body of Provo City. The Council, through the adoption of ordinances and resolutions, establishes laws, sets policy, oversees the budget, provides opinion on the administrative branch’s execution of the law, and approves long-term contracts and commitments of City resources. The Council annually supervises an independent financial audit of the City’s fiscal affairs. Council staff provides policy analysis, legal counsel and administrative support for the Council’s legislative activities and provides the public with access to the Provo City ordinances, resolutions, agendas, minutes, and adopted policies. In addition, an extensive volunteer Neighborhood Program is administered through the Council Office.
