Ann Arbor City Council Preview: September 6, 2022


Gentle readers, it's time for the first #a2Council meeting September. Here's the agenda

The evening kicks off with a modest, 12-item consent agenda. Of note: street closings for the Shriner's Parade, Ann Arbor Marathon, and Turkey Trot. CA-7 is authorizing the city to apply for a USDOT Safe Streets grant. 

There are no public hearings on the agenda, but there is an ordinance first reading. C-1 is the first reading of the new Right to Renew ordinance. This is an exciting new ordinance that would require landlords to renew rental agreements unless there is good cause not to. 

Further down the docket, we arrive at two resolutions. DC-1 is a resolution to support Michigan Senate Bill 58 and House Bill 4314 - Holding Polluters Accountable. DS-1 is pretty exciting. It's a resolution agreeing to a contract for a consultant to study the feasibility of a municipal utility and as well as a sustainable energy utility (SEU). It will be really interesting to get more information about these two options for Ann Arbor and how they will impact the city's climate goals. 

 And that's all there is. Looks like it'll be a pretty short meeting. 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.
