Ann Arbor City Council Preview: March 21, 2022


Gentle reader, tonight is the first #a2Council meeting of Spring. Here's the agenda, and here's the A2AF episode on the meeting. 

There's a modest, 10-item consent agenda. There are three street closings. CA-1, CA-2, and CA-3 are for the Burns Park Run, The Dexter-Ann Arbor Run, and the Mayor's Green Fair. If I were a gambling man, I would wager that CA-3 might be pulled. CM Ramlawi has mentioned in the past that he thinks the Mayor's Green Fair should be on the Library Lot. CA-9 is a resolution to approve the collective bargaining agreement with the Deputy Chief's CBA. Listen to A2AF for their comments on this. But tl:dr one of things that keeps us from having robust resident police oversight are the current contracts for the various AAPD CBAs. Seeing what is an essentially a continuation of the current contract come up in the consent agenda is disappointing.

There are no public hearings on the agenda and one ordinance first reading. C-1 is a routine township island annexation. 

Further down the agenda, there are 6 resolutions on tonight's docket. Of note, DC-3 is a resolution hiring current interim city administrator, Milton Dohoney Jr. as city administrator.  DC-5 is a resolution setting a public hearing on a tax exemption for Sartorius BioAnalytical Instruments. Finally, DC-6 would close streets for cars some places downtown for the summer. This is based. 

And that's it. What items are you most looking forward to seeing? Hopefully we will see you there. The CTN stream starts at 7 pm. Make sure you follow the action on the #a2Council hashtag.
