Emailing the Traffic Safety Committee

The most effective manner to communicate with the Traffic Safety Committee to send an email by 5:30 p.m. on the Thursday before the scheduled meeting. By doing this, the written comments will be included with the Staff Report (for agenda items) or with the agenda packet (for non-agenda items), which the Traffic Safety Committee members receive before the scheduled meeting. This provides the Traffic Safety Committee with the opportunity to review the comments before the next meeting. Written comments or e-mail messages submitted to the Department after 5:30 p.m. on Thursday before the meeting will be distributed to the Traffic Safety Committee at the meeting. All email messages are automatically forwarded to each Traffic Safety Committee member’s city email address at the time the message is received at the city. You can also email each member individually by clicking the link in their name in the Committee Member Term Limits table above.
The Traffic Safety Committee generally meets on the 4th Monday of every other month at 7 p.m. in the Community Room at City Hall, unless otherwise noted on the agenda.
