There are two significant items on the agenda for the upcoming meeting:
- A discussion regarding recognition of a series of various cultural heritage months.
- A discussion about the order of the agenda. This is from a request that I made previously. Currently public comment on non-agenda items comes after consent calendar, presentations, council and staff reports. At times these items could take a substantial amount of time and for those who come to meetings and want to raise an issue, it can be a challenge to wait an hour or more only to make a comment for 3 minutes. By moving the public comment on non-agenda items earlier in the agenda, it would allow greater participation from community members to raise issues that have not yet been agendized.
If you have any questions or thoughts on these items, please let me know.
