CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 6

Meeting Date: August 24, 2004

Subject/Title: Appointment of Members to the Citizen’s Advisory Committee
on Community Facilities

Prepared by: Karen Chew, Assistant City Manager

Submitted by: John Stevenson, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION

Authorize appointment of nine members to the Citizens Advisory Committee regarding Community Facilities.

BACKGROUND

On May 25, 2004, the City Council authorized staff to begin advertising and accepting applications from the community to serve on a newly created Citizen’s Advisory Committee to work with staff in determining the Community Facilities needs, priorities and opportunities.

Thirteen applications were received and on August 6, 2004, the Mayor met with the Director of Parks & Recreation and the Assistant City Manager to review the applications. Consensus was reached to appoint nine members to this Committee and to solicit representation from both Brentwood Union School District and Liberty Union High School District to serve in an advisory capacity. It was felt that the nine individuals recommended for appointment represent a broad cross-section of the community and will provide input from a variety of perspectives regarding the future facility needs of the community.

FISCAL IMPACT

The fiscal impact of this Committee will be minimal. Staff recommends amending the budget to allow an amount of general fund money not to exceed $2,500.00 for the possibility that this Committee may need some minimal expenditure of funds to efficiently accomplish its tasks. This may include group field trips to other facilities, or other activities yet to be defined.
