July 30 Council Meeting

Post by Steve Adler » Wed Jul 29, 2020 8:10 pm


We have 434 speakers signed up on non-zoning items and up to 157 on zoning items. We will give speakers 1 minute each on all items in order to allow time for us to hear all the speakers. Like at the last Budget Hearing, we will hear speakers in batches. We need to vote on #70 before 2 pm so we will hear those speakers first. Then, speakers will be assigned batches in the order they signed up, with Zoning in a separate batch at 2 pm. After the zoning speakers have spoken, we’ll fill any gaps between with zoning deliberations. Applicants will speak when their case is called, not during the speaker batches.

Here is our planned schedule:

10 am – 12pm: Batch 1: Public Hearing Speakers, beginning with Speakers on #70; then discussion and vote on #70.
Noon – 1 pm: Lunch
1-2pm: Exec Session (Nov. 2020 Election)
2-3pm: Batch 2: Zoning speakers
3-5pm: Batch 3: Public Hearing speakers
5-6 pm: Dinner
6-8pm: Batch 4: Public Hearing speakers
8-10 pm: Batch 5: Public Hearing speakers

We can deliberate and vote on any zoning discussion cases during gaps after zoning speakers.
We will handle all other remaining votes after all speakers.
