For each City Council meeting, I provide links to the agenda on the City's Legistar website, CTN's YouTube video of the meeting, and to my newsletters and voting charts. I write summaries of agenda items, along with Legistar links, articles I've written (highlighted purple), and articles published on MLive. Look for highlighted text to find votes on development, affordable housing, and the City's Sustainability and Innovations department.

October 12, 2021
This was a special session to authorize a contract for Interim City Administrator. This meeting was held online, via the ZOOM application. Michigan Open Meetings Act changes effective April 1, 2021 require all Council Members to state their location.
APPROVED: An employment agreement for Milton Dohoney, Jr. to serve as Interim City Administrator for a period of approximately one year. Financial terms include an annual base salary of $223,600, a housing allowance of $2500 per month, plus a City vehicle or car allowance/reimbursement. His employment will begin on October 18, 2021. (Legistar)
APPROVED: Privilege is waived on a legal memo prepared by outside consulting attorneys (Dykema) advising Council on the impact of the State Budget approved on September 29, 2021. The memo addresses the narrow question of whether "boilerplate language" in the State Budget bill potentially restricts local government in imposing vaccine mandates, requiring proof of vaccination, or maintaining vaccine databases. (Legistar)
The memo is now publicly available here: https://a2gov.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=9882087&GUID=F3AD7DBC-75AD-4C41-AF4B-F022C9BC5668
