STUDY SESSION

13.      TELEVISED STUDY SESSIONS

 

City Attorney Victor introduced a legislative request made by Councilmembers Grassi and McCluskey to televise the City Council’s study sessions.  He indicated that years ago, the Council initially chose not to televise study sessions with the expectation that it would create a more informal environment and where there would be a more informal discussion.  He explained that with a change in the billing method, televising the entire regular meeting of the Council will bear no additional cost. However, there would be additional cost to televising special meetings. 

 

After discussion, Council consented to televise study session during regular Council meetings. The televising of any study session outside of the regular meeting will be approved by super majority vote of the Council. 

 

Staff was directed to bring forth a resolution for Council consideration.

 

At 9:01 p.m., a motion was made and was carried to extend the meeting to 9:15 p.m.

 

14.      SIGN CODE REGULATION AMENDMENTS – To be rescheduled at a future meeting.
