Student Commission

Postby Jimmy Flannigan » Tue May 09, 2017 3:01 pm

On Item 9 for the Student Commission... I am 100% supportive of creating this body. I do have some thoughts on its composition and other details. Since the creation of commissions have come back to us as code amendments, I'm hoping the sponsors would accept making Thursday's resolution less prescriptive so that we can have a more thoughtful conversation during the creation of ordinance language.

To that end, replace the Be It Resolved clauses with:

-----------------
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF AUSTIN
The City Manager is directed to process amendments to City Code Chapter 2-1 brought by the City Council, relating to formation of an advisory board to be designated the Student Advisory Commission, and relating to the composition, functions, duties, and conduct of such commission.
-----------------

I'm also willing to having the longer conversation on Thursday, but in the hopes of maintaining an abbreviated meeting, I think we can just pass a resolution initiating the process.
