SUMMARY:

 

In July of 2016 the City Council adopted City Council Rules and Procedures, wherein Section 2.07 covered, “Consent Agenda.”

 

Section 2.07 states:

 

                     The Council Executive may include in the consent agenda section of the preliminary

agenda any items which are not controversial, are viewed as routine, which are procedural or have been thoroughly discussed previously that require formal Council approval.  During the Agenda Conference, or during the consent agenda portion of a regular Council meeting, any single member shall have the unqualified privilege to move any item from the consent agenda to the regular agenda items section without explanation.

 

There are occasions where an item may meet the criteria as set out above for inclusion on the Consent Agenda but where Council Member’s have questions about a particular item; in situation where these questions are adequately answered during the Agenda Conference, this amendment would allow for the placement of these items on the Consent Agenda with the approval of the majority of Council.
