Council committee schedule takes shape
Thursday, March 12, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
With a new document posted online, some blanks in City Council’s new committee meeting schedule were filled in Wednesday. Each Council committee will meet once a week, and unlike what was initially proposed, the meetings will not interfere with evening Boards and Commissions meetings. In alphabetical order: The Audit and Finance Committee will meet at 9 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month; the Austin Energy Committee will meet at 9 a.m. on the fourth Thursday of the month; the Economic Opportunity Committee will meet at 2 p.m. on the second Monday of the month; the Health and Human Services Committee will meet at 4 p.m. on the first Monday of the month; the Housing and Community Development Committee will meet at 4 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month; the Mobility Committee will meet at 3 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month; the Open Space, Environment, and Sustainability Committee will meet at 2 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of the month; the Planning and Neighborhoods Committee will meet at 4 p.m. on the third Monday of the month; the Public Safety Committee will meet at 4 p.m. on the fourth Monday of the month; and the Public Utilities Committee will meet at 3 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. More information, and a promise of more to come, can be found on the city’s website, here. There is no official word on when all of the committees will be up and running, but some meetings have been scheduled, and an Audit and Finance Committee meeting has already taken place.
