CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 3

Meeting Date: July 23, 2002

Subject/Title: Approve 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

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution establishing the commencement time of 7:00 p.m. for regular city council meetings.

PREVIOUS ACTION
Currently regular city council meetings start at 7:30 p.m.

BACKGROUND
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.

FISCAL IMPACT
There is no fiscal impact as a result of this action.

RESOLUTION NO.
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 for regular council meetings, such regular council meetings, such regular 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 City Council hereby establishes 7:00 p.m. as the commencement time for regular City Council meetings.
