|CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
ITEM NO. 3
Meeting Date: July
a resolution establishing the commencement time of 7:00 p.m. for regular
city council meetings.
Submitted by: Karen
Diaz, City Clerk/Administrative Services Director
Approved by: John
Stevenson, City Manager
Approve a Resolution establishing the commencement time of 7:00 p.m. for
regular city council meetings.
Currently regular city council meetings start at 7:30 p.m.
To improve convenience to the public, staff is recommending starting city
council meetings at 7:00 p.m. rather than 7:30. By starting council meetings
one half hour earlier, citizens will have time to get home from work and
attend the meetings at 7:00 p.m., and may not need to stay as late in
the evening to hear about and provide comments on agenda items. In addition,
the public would always know that city meetings begin at 7:00 as this
is consistent with the start time for other city commissions; i.e., Planning,
Parks & Recreation, Arts, and Youth. Section 2.04.020 of the Municipal
Code allows the city council to set by resolution the commencement time
for regular city council meetings.
There is no fiscal impact as a result of this action.
A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BRENTWOOD ESTABLISHING
THE COMMENCEMENT TIME FOR REGULAR COUNCIL MEETINGS
WHEREAS, Brentwood Municipal Code section 2.04.020 states that the City
Council "shall meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month

council meetings to commence at the time or times as specified by resolution";
WHEREAS, the Brentwood
Parks and Recreation Commission, Planning Commission, Youth Commission
and the Arts Commission all begin their meetings at 7:00 p.m.;
WHEREAS, the City
desires to be consistent with all other city commissions and to provide
better service to citizens.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE
IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Brentwood, as follows:
Section 1. The foregoing
recitals are true and correct, and this City Council so finds and determines.
Section 2. Pursuant to Brentwood Municipal Code Section 2.04.020, the
