General Policy Committee Referral List and Legislative/Policy Process for the City (B)


At the March 8, 2018, General Policy Committee (GPC) Meeting, the City Commission directed staff to place the GPC referral list on the March 15th City Commission Regular Meeting agenda for discussion.  The Charter Officers met to discuss the GPC referral list and ideas for a new legislative/policy process for the City.  As a result of their discussion, the Charter Officers recommend that the City Commission schedule GPC items to be heard through the GPC Meeting on April 26th (a copy of this proposed schedule is included in the back-up), allow the remaining GPC referral items to automatically sunset on April 30th  in accordance with the current City Commission Rules (a copy of this sunset list is included in the back-up) and recess GPC meetings until September.  This would allow the City Commission and Staff time to focus on the budget, items already discussed/approved (such as the joint City/County issues of homelessness and the CRA) and designing a new legislative/policy process.   A timeline for a conceptual legislative/policy process is included in the back-up and the Charter Officers would like to present further details on this concept to the City Commission at the April 10th City Commission Special Meeting.



(1) Hold GPC Meetings through April 26th to hear items on the referral list; (2) GPC stand in recess from May through August and schedule the next GPC Meeting for September 13, 2018; and (3) add a discussion of a new legislative/policy process to the April 10th Meeting Agenda.
