Monday, September 21, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
On Sunday, Mayor Steve Adler announced his intention to form an “ad hoc legislative committee” via the City Council Message Board. In his post, Adler asked for feedback on his envisioned scope, which is currently:
“1. Recommend to full council what should be on our legislative agenda; 2. Recommend protocol for how council members testify or interact with other governmental bodies in their official capacity as council members; 3. Recommend a process for timely updating of the legislative agenda; 4. Recommend an ongoing process for making any modifications to our lobby teams.”
