Title
Resolution to Restate the Purpose and Membership of the Ann Arbor Energy Commission
Memorandum
This resolution restates the purpose and membership of the Energy Commission. The Energy Commission was created on December 2, 1985 by resolution of the City Council (R-552-1-85). That resolution provided that the commission focus primarily on energy efficiency. The Energy Commission has requested that its purposes be updated and that two youth and two Council members be added to the commission as voting members. This resolution provides a broader charge to the commission to advise on energy production and use - not just energy efficiency - and adds two youth and two Council members. Although previously City Council has assigned Council members to the commission, these were nonvoting, ad hoc assignments that were not provided for in the enabling resolution.
