Meetings are not scheduled for the months of July and December. The May 25, 2016, council meeting will be the annual Legislative Luncheon at the Josh Gibson Center, 116 Rogers Street, Buena Vista.


Individual committees have been formed within the council related to transportation, economic development, environmental, and planning issues that affect our region.
