City Council voted Tuesday to make an official Arts Committee from the Arts Task Force.

The task force was previously charged with coordinating special art installations in city-owned spaces and will now oversee multiple other aspects including rotating galleries in City Hall and the library as well as promoting the city’s identity through the creation and recognition of icons around the community.

As the committee’s council liaison, Councilmember Peggy Chapados recused herself from the vote, and instead presented the group’s mission statement and newly created policy for art displays.

The Display Policy, Chapados said, will include sales options for artists work.
