Council approves committees on consent

Friday, February 13, 2015 by Sunny Sone

City Council approved committee and intergovernmental committee appointments on consent at the regular meeting Thursday. Committee members are appointed by the mayor and ratified by Council. The appointments were confirmed with little discussion, but environmental consultant Scott Johnson spoke to suggest adding another appointee to the Clean Air Force Coalition. Council Member Don Zimmerman is the appointee to that and two other environmentally focused committees. Four Council members serve on each committee, except for Austin Energy, on whose committee every member serves. The committee structure is a part of this Council’s larger restructure, which included combining and creating committees from the previous Council for a total of 10 Council committees.
