Council Committees and Planning Commission Members

Postby Steve Adler » Tue Jan 15, 2019 3:47 pm

Colleagues,

At the first Work Session of the year (January 29), the plan is to have a discussion about Council Committees and Planning Commission Appointments.


Council Committees:

Per Ordinance 20180510-019, Council Committee membership will be determined at the first council work session of the calendar year. Per the ordinance:

- Council Members will select the council committees on which they serve.
- If more than five council members desire to serve on any committee, that committee will be a committee of the whole.
- The terms are one year, but council may consider changes to council committee membership at any council work session.

The current Council Committees are:
- Audit and Finance Committee
- Austin Energy Utility Oversight Committee
- Health and Human Services Committee
- Housing and Planning Committee
- Judicial Committee
- Mobility Committee


If any Council Members have an interest in stepping down from a current committee post and/or, if any colleagues have an interest in joining any of these committees, we can start the conversation here. Feel free to comment.



Planning Commission members:

The terms of all Planning Commissioners expire in June 2019, but with the recent charter change, there is more flexibility for the timing of appointments. Last year, council said that we would have a discussion about Planning Commission appointments as a body. We would like to start this conversation at the Jan 29 work session.



Intergovernmental Entitles:
We also plan to talk about Intergovernmental entities during this time. You can find a list of those here: http://www.austintexas.gov/department/c ... l-entities.

Thanks for the post! I'd like to remain on two of the committees where I've been serving and request one change:

Chair - Judicial Committee (current)
Vice-chair - Mobility Committee (current)
Member - Audit & Finance Committee (new)
(stepping off of Housing Committee)

I'd also like to stay on the CAMPO policy board and take on the CAPCOG Executive Committee position.

I already represent the city on the CAN board (recently appointed vice chair), the CAPCOG Economic Development board, and the Pecan Street Project. But I do not believe these require council action.

Thanks for chiming in Jimmy.

As for me, I would like to keep all my current committee/board seats but am willing to step off the Council HHS/Public Health Committee if any colleagues would like to take that seat.

Cap Metro (Vice Chair)
Regional Affordability Chair (Chair)
Mobility Committee
Judicial Committee
HHS Committee (willing to step off but fine staying too)

Thanks,

Delia

Dear Colleagues,

I am interested in continuing to serve on the three council committees on which I currently serve: Audit & Finance, Mobility Committee, and Housing & Planning (Vice Chair). I would like to continue to serve on CAMPO and the Joint AISD County City Subcommittee. I would be happy to allow others an opportunity to serve on and learn about the important work of the Clean Air Force Board and the Colorado River Floodplain Coalition.

Moving forward, I want to ensure our conversation includes an equitable distribution of leadership opportunities.

Regards,
Council Member, District 10

Re: CM Ellis appointment as alternate for CAMPO:

It appears that the bylaws do allow Alternates and non-voting proxies to be appointed. See Section III of the bylaws:

https://47kzwj6dn1447gy9z7do16an-wpengi ... Signed.pdf

The Joint Powers Agreement also references Alternates, on page 3:
