CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 19

Meeting Date: January 9, 2001

Subject/Title: Approve initial appointments to the Arts Commission

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager


RECOMMENDATION 
Approve appointment of Chris Robinson, Jan Melloni, Joe Trebino, Barbara Guise, Helen Meyers, and Alice Kamers to the City of Brentwood Arts Commission.

PREVIOUS ACTION
Chapter 2.44 of the Municipal Code pertaining to the Arts Commission was initially approved in 1988. City Council approved the activation of an interim arts commission on April 11, 2000, whose purpose was to bring back to City Council a recommendation to revise/update the existing ordinance. City Council approved a new Chapter 2.44 of the Municipal Code related to the Arts Commission on September 12, 2000.

BACKGROUND
With the approval of Chapter 2.44 establishing a new arts commission, it was expected the commission would start in January 2001. The first meeting is scheduled for January 24, 2001 and staff has started the recruitment to fill the commission vacancies.

The ordinance allows for a maximum of up to 25 commissioners, however, staff is recommending that the positions be filled in a gradual fashion so as to build momentum for the new commission. It would be rather difficult to start the commission with a full complement of 25 commissioners.

Staff is recommending the Mayor and City Council approve an initial appointment of 6 commissioners, all of which were very instrumental in working as interim commissioners on the revision of the Arts Commission ordinance. The following six individuals have expressed an interest in serving as arts commissioners:

Chris Robinson, Jan Melloni, Joe Trebino, Barbara Guise, Helen Meyers, and Alice Kamers.

Staff is recommending these initial six commissioners be appointed and serve a three-year term from January 1, 2001 - December 31, 2003. The Mayor will be requested to make additional appointments as citizens apply for consideration.
