How Do Items Get on an Agenda?
The agenda is set by the City Manager, as authorized in the City Charter. Additionally, there are a few different ways that an item may be placed on an agenda:
- Councilmembers may bring an item forward by requesting it be placed on an agenda under Future Agenda Item Requests (F.A.I.R.) at the end of Regular Meeting agendas. If at least two Councilmembers agree to move the item forward, it will be placed on the Future Agenda Request (F.A.R.) list and placed on a future agenda by the City Manager.
- A Citizen Petition may be submitted to the City Manager's Office. Once it is filed, the City Manager has 31 days in which to place it on a Regular Meeting as a Future Agenda Item Request (F.A.I.R.) to determine if at least two Councilmembers wish to move it forward to a future agenda.
