Public Safety Committee


  • Mayor Ray Pearl
  • Councilmember Brad Halpern

The Public Safety Committee evaluates and advises the City Council on the status of programs, projects, activities, and services impacting the health, welfare, and safety of the residents of the community. For example, the Committee provides oversight of such public safety services as police, fire, ambulance, crossing guards, anti-drug programs, emergency preparedness / disaster response, and the like.

The Committee also addresses traffic safety issues by interfacing with the City's Contract Traffic Engineer and staff in evaluating and recommending traffic related improvements and programs (i.e., signing and striping in the public right-of-way, signal timing, traffic law enforcement, etc.) to the full City Council.
