TITLE

Consider a memorandum/resolution rescheduling the City Council meetings for October, November, and December 2021.

SUMMARY

DATE: August 3, 2021

TO: Kent Cagle, City Manager

FROM: Judy Paradice, City Manager’s Office

SUBJECT: Reschedule October, November, and December City Council Meetings

BACKGROUND AND FINDINGS:

Section 34 of the City Charter provides that the City Council shall meet regularly, but not less frequently than twice a month. Historically, the City Council has scheduled these two meetings for the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month.

The national Association of the United States Army (AUSA) meeting occurs in October each year leaving the City Council with a lack of a quorum for scheduled meetings. This year’s AUSA meeting occurs the second week of October.

The holidays in November and December create possible quorum issues due to travel.

THE ALTERNATIVES CONSIDERED:

Which alternative is recommended? Why?

The alternative considered for the October meeting is to move the October 12 Regular Meeting back one week to October 19 and have the scheduled Workshop Meeting after the Regular Meeting.

OCTOBER

The fourth Tuesday of November falls during the week of Thanksgiving. The fourth Tuesday in December falls immediately after the Christmas holiday. It is recommended that the second regular City Council meeting of November be held on November 16, 2021, and the second regular meeting of December be held on December 14, 2021.
