Ann Arbor City Council Preview: June 21, 2021


Gentle reader, it's #a2Council Night in Ann Arbor. Here's the meeting agenda.

The evening kicks off with a substantial, 24-item consent agenda. CA-10 is a resolution for Healthy Streets. This includes some great things including reconfiguring some major streets for safety. I am personally excited for the permanent bike lanes this would add to Packard between Carpenter to Eisenhower. CA-20 is the contract for AAPD sergeants and lieutenants. I really wish council would facilitate a public discussion about police contracts before they end up on the consent agenda. CA-23 is a resolution to increase the DDA budget. The DDA had asked for this previously, but it was left out of the FY 22 budget. I would not be surprised if this got pulled. 

There is one public hearing on the agenda tonight. PH-1/B-1 updates the non-discrimination ordinance to ban discrimination based on race-based hair discrimination. Glad to see this going forward. 

Elsewhere on the agenda we have C-1 an ordinance to amend the rules governing the ICPOC.  DC-4 is a resolution to amend and extend the recycling contract with Recycle Ann Arbor. Gentle reader, I am going to be honest with you, I remember this being sticky in the past, but I forget why. 

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.
