The commission will provide recommendations to the City Council, which will have final approval over project applications. The commission will also meet annually to prepare other federal applications for consideration by the city council. Meeting times for the commission are as necessary.

There are two vacancies on the Citizens’ Rate Review Committee (CRRC), which is comprised of eight appointed citizens who will review, analyze and discuss rates necessary to operate the city’s utility funds efficiently. The committee meets bi-annually to discuss utility rates and may meet as needed to discuss special projects. Applicants must reside within city limits and be a consumer of Newberg’s utilities.
