Re: Item 31 - Bike Share of Austin

CMs Flannigan and Kitchen, I appreciate the dialogue you've begun surrounding these contracts. I am supportive of a shorter contract term for Item #31 than 2 years given that we are currently evaluating Project Connect. A 9 month contract is agreeable to me so that we may see what voters are support...

Re: Clarity needed on camping ordinance

CM Flannigan - I agree that we should be taking our guidance from our new Homeless Strategy Officer and from law enforcement on what they are able to enforce through the ordinances as they are & to suggest what might need clarification.

Re: Work Session Scheduling

Thank you, Mayor Adler, for this post. I could arrange my calendar to be available the morning of the 10th before the Mobility Committee meeting at 1 pm, but I also think your perspective would be particularly useful for our discussion on homelessness. I'd prefer to hold it during the Tuesday (15th)...
