Item 6
#atxcouncil is now on item 6, an interlocal w #TravCo on a central booking facility. #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:49 AM
after hearing from the public, @donzimmermanatx has asked for ppd, so his public safety committee can hear it. #atxcouncil #atxgov #zimcity October 08, 2015 10:49 AM
.@gregoriocasar moves approval. suggests @donzimmermanatxs committee would get to hear it as part of normal process. #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:50 AM
.@gregoriocasar also has an amendment. #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:51 AM
.@gregoriocasar amendment adds amendment that underscores that #atxgov value(s) our immigrant community #atxcouncil October 08, 2015 10:52 AM
.@gregoriocasar amendment appears aimed at helping #TravCo on policy not auto referring inmates to feds. #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:54 AM
.@gregoriocasar seeing resistance from @donzimmermanatx and @sherigallod10, ostensibly on procedure #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:55 AM
…procedure being that they feel @GregorioCasar amendment should be heard in committee first. #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:55 AM
also, by feds, i mean INS. #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:56 AM
#atxgov staff notes that current interlocal on booking has expired; @SheriGalloD10 looks at large $$ figure, lateness of hour. #atxcouncil October 08, 2015 10:59 AM
.@sherigallod10 says late hour, $$ figure puts (her) in a very uncomfortable position. #atxcouncil #atxgov October 08, 2015 10:59 AM

Austin City Council: The Austin City Council is the body with legislative purview over the City of Austin. It offers policy direction, while the office of the City Manager implements administrative actions based on those policies. Until 2015, the body contained seven members, including the city's Mayor, all elected at-large. In 2012, City of Austin residents voted to change that system and as of 2015, 10 members of the Council are elected based on geographic districts. The Mayor continues to be elected at-large.
