Ann Arbor City Council Preview: August 24, 2020


Gentle readers, there is yet another #a2council meeting this month. Here's the agenda

There are three items on the docket tonight. DC-1 is a consent to the Mayor's declaration of a local state o emergency. The Mayor declared a state of emergency due to COVID earlier today. DC-2 is an ordinance that adds a temporary emergency ordinance. My understanding is creates rules around wearing masks in Ann Arbor. DC-3 is a resolution to recommend next steps in the city administrator search process. I imagine this will be the most contentious issue of the night. Some are arguing that, since we are in the lame duck session, and since there will be 5 new councilmembers in November, council should wait until these new members are sworn in before choosing the next administrator. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. 

As always, gentle reader, I am probably forgetting some very important items here. What agenda items are you most looking forward to seeing. I am guessing that tonight will be another late night around the virtual council table. Hopefully we will see you there. The CTN stream starts at 7 pm. Make sure you follow the action on the #a2council hashtag.
