OLD IS NEW AGAIN…
CITY COUNCIL RETURNS
TO COMMITTEE MEETING FORMAT
RAPID CITY, SD—The City Council returns to its traditional committee format next week, abandoning the working session format for discussion of agenda items.
The City’s Public Works Committee will resume Tuesday and the Legal and Finance Committee will meet next Wednesday. Both meetings are scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in Council Chambers.
In August, the City Council voted to abandon the working session format for discussion of agenda items the week prior to council meetings and return to the previous committee format. The Public Works Committee will meet Tuesdays prior to Council meetings and Legal and Finance Committee meetings will be conducted on Wednesdays before Council sessions.
The working session format was approved by the Council on a trial basis last fall in an effort to promote more efficient discussion and dialogue between Council members and City department staff.
The Public Works Committee will be comprised of John Roberts, Greg Strommen, Pat Jones, Bill Evans and Laura Armstrong with Roberts serving as committee chair. The City’s Legal and Finance Committee will be comprised of Darla Drew, Lance Lehmann, Ron Weifenbach, Ritchie Nordstrom and Jason Salamun with Drew serving as committee chair.
