For information sharing purposes, each advisory committee has a Council Committee that serves as the City Council’s liaison to the advisory committee. The Finance Committee is the liaison to the UAC. The Finance Committee and the UAC meet at least once a year to discuss business items and to relay information. UAC Chair Mike Buffo will attend the meeting on behalf of the UAC.

The UAC is a Council-appointed citizen advisory committee. There is public comment period at every UAC meeting. The UAC meets at 5:40 p.m. at Olympia City Hall the first Thursday of every month (expect July and January).
