Commission meeting postponed and officers don’t know why

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 by Joseph Caterine

The Feb. 20 meeting of the Zoning and Platting Commission has been postponed, but at the end of the day on Monday, Vice Chair Jim Duncan told the Austin Monitor that he and Chair Jolene Kiolbassa had not been able to find out why. The agenda for the meeting had been posted as usual last Friday, but it was not until Monday morning that Duncan heard the news. City offices were closed for Presidents Day, so staff could not be reached for an explanation. Duncan said he was disappointed, considering the commission’s long list of cases and its commitment to review and make a final recommendation on the third draft of CodeNEXT, which was published on Feb. 12. “I’m sure there’s a good reason,” he said, as to why staff moved back the meeting. “Well, actually, I’m not so sure.”
