A fairly routine week coming up in City Hall…
Monday morning in its weekly Council Briefing, the Council will get another weekly update on the state legislative session from the Office of Intergovernmental Relations. They will also get briefed on the police-accountability legislation that’s headed its way, and have two briefings in executive session on pending litigation (most likely the two lawsuits filed last week by Uber and the ACLU).
Monday afternoon the full Council meeting will be very short: they currently have no agenda items other than the standard fare of paying the bills and hearing public comment.
This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar has eight appointments, as well as:
- a bill authorizing a long list of property transfers related to Seattle City Light’s ESA Early Action Program;
- a pair of bills to update the city’s traffic code and criminal code to keep them consistent with recent changes in state law.
Tuesday morning the Civil Rights, Utilities, Economic Development and Arts Committee meets. On its agenda are four appointments and an ordinance updating the city’s official Position List.
Tuesday afternoon the Energy and Environment Committee meets. The meeting agenda has not yet been published, but it’s expected to take up the aforementioned bill on Seattle City Light’s ESA Early Action Program property transfers.
Wednesday morning, the Gender Equity, Safe Communities and New Americans Committee meets. The agenda has not yet been published, but it should include the previously mentioned bills updating the traffic and criminal codes. It might also have a discussion on the police-accountability legislation.
Wednesday afternoon, the Human Services and Public Health Committee meets. The formal agenda has not been published, but committee chair Sally Bagshaw noted last week that the meeting will have another briefing from the Mayor’s office on the implementation of the “Bridging the Gap” interim plan for addressing the homelessness crisis.
