Standing Committees of the Common Council -- Re: To Affirm Existing and Active Ones, Establish a New One, and Dissolve All Inactive Ones

This resolution brings forward recommendations from the 2012-2013 Council Rules Committee to conform legislation with current committee practices by affirming four active, establishing one new, and dissolving all inactive Council Standing Committees. In particular, the resolution affirms Council Board and Commission Interviewing and Nominating Committees “A,” “B,” and “C” along with the Jack Hopkins Social Services Funding Program Committee as Council Standing Committees. It also establishes the Council Sidewalk Committee as a new Standing Committee and dissolves all other Standing Committees which, as a matter of practice, have not been convened in over fifteen years.
