Council Committees 2020

Post by Steve Adler » Wed Jan 15, 2020 11:02 am

Colleagues,

At the first Work Session of the year, we typically have a discussion about Council Committees and Intergovernmental Committees. I will be not able to attend the 1/21 Work Session, so we will post that discussion for the 2/4 Work Session instead.


As a reminder, per Ordinance 20180510-019:

- 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
- Austin Water 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. Also comment if anyone wants to step down from any Intergovernmental Committees.

Thank you Council Member Tovo.

For others, if you prefer to keep all your appointments the same, no need to respond. But if you would like any changes, please respond here.
