2018 dates for AE Utility Oversight Cmte

Post by Leslie Pool » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:49 pm

All, I wanted to provide some context for the dates for our Austin Energy Oversight committee meetings in 2018. AE General Manager Jackie Sargent and her staff prepared a proposal that moves our meetings from fourth Monday mornings at 9.30 a.m. to fourth Wednesdays at 1.30 p.m. specifically to align better with meetings of the Electric Utility Commission which fall on the third Monday on the month (this is sometimes affected when holidays fall on a Monday) and Resource Management Commission meetings (third Tuesdays). AE staff reviewed the meeting times set for other committees of Council and chose the fourth Wednesday time slot that opened up when we discontinued the Open Space Committee. Doing so addresses the time compression with our mission-partner commissions, EUC and RMC, and also responds to Council direction to provide a 10-day or two week separation between commission action and Council consideration. I very much appreciate staff's work in this regard - our schedules are often beyond challenging to coordinate - and thank AE staff for carefully crafting the schedule, taking into account the disparate groups affected.

Our first meeting in 2018 will be January 24, 1.30-3.30 p.m., in the Boards & Commissions Room.
We will have nine meetings in 2018, with no meetings in July, August and December.
Additionally, the December 2017 meeting will be canceled.
