I write a City Council newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council. Sign up to receive it first via email, or read it here later on this blog.
I post charts of how Council voted after each meeting, and also post my perspectives on how issues were resolved. I post news that affects Ward 4 residents tagged with "Ward 4 News", with construction updates also tagged "Construction 2021". News that affects all city residents is tagged with "City News".

City Council Voting Chart for July 27, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order, this Council meeting was held electronically via Zoom teleconferencing


This was a Special Session to discuss the Affordable Housing Millage ballot language. This item was postponed from the previous Council Meeting (7/20/20) because it was added to the agenda too late for Council Members to ask questions of staff.


The ballot language will now be sent to the State for final approval.

It takes a couple weeks for City Council meeting minutes to be officially approved, and I know some of you are curious to know how we vote on the issues that matter to you.  In case you are not able to invest over seven hours in watching it live or online, below is a chart illustrating how members voted on each issue at our most recent meeting on July 27, 2020. To find more information about any of the ordinances/resolutions listed in this chart, you can refer to Legistar:

Draft meeting minutes will be posted at that same link, generally within several days of the meeting. The official meeting minutes will also eventually be found at that same link, once approved by Council.
