Title
Resolution to Confirm Appointments to the Independent Community Police Oversight Commission of Members Who Are Not Registered Electors of the City (7 Votes Required)
Body
Whereas, on March 18, 2019, City Council voted, with over 7 Council members concurring, to approve appointments to the Independent Community Police Oversight Commission (Council Resolution R-19-107);

Whereas, Resolution R-19-107 noted that 7 votes of Council were required to approve the resolution, which the Council sponsors intended to reflect the number of votes required to waive the requirements of Section 12.2(b) of the City Charter, which states:

"Residency eligibility requirements for paid appointed officers shall be in accordance with State law. An unpaid appointive officer to a board or commission established pursuant to law, this charter, or ordinance shall be eligible for appointment if he/she is a registered elector of this City, unless this requirement is waived by a resolution concurred in by not less than seven members of Council."

Whereas, Resolution R-19-107 stated the residency of the appointees, but did not specifically reference their status as registered electors of the City; and

Whereas, The Council sponsors of R-19-107 wish to clarify and confirm the previous appointments of persons who are not registered electors of the City;
