This week in Council Chamber

It will be a very quiet week for the Council.

Monday morning’s Council Briefing has no specific agenda items. It wouldn’t surprise me if they circulated a resolution responding to the mass shooting in Orlando over the weekend.

Monday afternoon’s Full Council meeting features votes on a long list of appointments, plus four other items of note:

  • A resolution on the retirement security crisis;
  • An ordinance extending the Living Building Pilot Program;
  • A resolution encouraging individual tenant assessments by landlords that place prior criminal convictions in proper context;
  • An update to the city’s public voyeurism ordinance to align it with state law.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar is short: three appointments and two collective bargaining agreements. No new ordinances.

Two committee meetings have been cancelled this week: the Energy and Environment Committee Tuesday afternoon, and the Education, Equity an Governance Committee Wednesday afternoon.

Tuesday morning’s┬áCivil Rights, Utilities, Economic Development and Arts Committee will consider an ordinance granting protections for tenants against discrimination based upon source of income or payment through housing subsidies. The committee will also hear a presentation on Seattle Public Utilities’ 2015 external audits, and have a discussion on potential funding sources for local labor laws.

Wednesday morning the Affordable Housing, Neighborhoods and Finance Committee meets, and Thursday morning the Parks, Seattle Center, Libraries and Waterfront Committee meets. Agendas have not been published yet for these meetings.
