Items from Council members bubble in

Thursday, January 22, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Next Thursday, the Austin City Council will hold its first “real” meeting, and the draft agenda — which is still very much a draft — has been posted on the city’s website. Though most of the issues are holdovers from last year, three Council members have already submitted Items from Council. Council Member Delia Garza has proposed the creation of a Regional Affordability Committee as an intergovernmental committee. That item is co-sponsored by Council Members Ann Kitchen, Leslie Pool and Ellen Troxclair. Pool has an item to create a Task Force on Community Engagement that is co-sponsored by Council Members Sherri Gallo, Ora Houston and Kitchen. And Council Member Pio Renteria has asked to approve a fee waiver for the Martin Luther King Jr. parade that was held this past Monday. Renteria’s item is co-sponsored by Council Members Kitchen, Houston and Greg Casar.
