Relationship To Strategic Plan:

Goal 5: Financially Sound City Providing Exemplary City Services



Executive Summary:

At the October 26, 2023 Audit Committee meeting, Committee members directed the Office of Internal Audit to revise the Bylaws. Changes were necessary to update office appointment, term limits and specify when elections shall be held.




The current Audit Committee Bylaws dictate officers are to be elected annually at the meeting held in August. In order to better align with the biennial City Council elections the revised Bylaws move the August events to January and designate a two-year term for officers.







Budget Impact: 





1) Adopt the revised Bylaws

2) Do not adopt the revised Bylaws




Recommended Action: 

Staff requests Council move to adopt the revised Audit Committee Bylaws.
