Body

 

Over the last several meetings the City Council Rules Committee has reviewed the duties and authority of each of the individual City Council Committees.  Over time the needs and duties have shifted and this ordinance aligns the current practice of the Committees and the language in section 2-60.3 of the code.  Significantly, it also addresses provisions found in section 2-60.6 that provide for "other duties" of the Committees.  This section now specifies that each Committee will have jurisdiction over certain types of agreements requiring the expenditure of funds.
