Presently in the city there exists a number of boards and commissions engaged in planning for specialized and specific fields. The intent of these boards and commissions are to have input from citizens who represent each ward concerning the effect departmental decisions will have on the community and the city. One of the most important duties of these divisions, authorized by the Code of Ordinances, is to engage in planning for the development of the city and its entire metropolitan area.

Under the Mayor-Council form of government, the Code of Ordinances vests the mayor with the power to appoint all members of any board, authority, and commission with confirmation by a majority of the City Council members present and voting.
