Resolution to Adopt City Council Rules Following the 2022 General Election


City Council Rule 1 requires that City Council review and adopt the Council Rules following each general election.


The attached draft Rules are as approved on November 10 and with the addition of Rule 22, relating to Health and Safety. This Rule was added pursuant to R-22-313, which required a new Council Rule be adopted to enforce masking at Council meetings consistent with CDC guidance:


RESOLVED, That, in order to prevent the transmission of COVID-19, protect the health of meeting attendees, minimize the possibility of disrupting public meetings, and thereby promote public participation by creating a safer meeting environment, City Council hereby adopts the following regulation, which shall be adopted and published as a Council Rule:


1.                     City Council meetings shall be conducted consistent with the guidance of the CDC with respect to masking, as from time to time updated by the CDC.


2.                     All in-person attendees at City Council meetings are required to wear a mask when transmission rates are such that CDC guidance recommends masks for all persons; the type of mask required and how it must be worn shall be consistent with CDC guidance in effect at the time masking is required.


Several other clerical corrections were made and are viewable via Track Changes.

Whereas, This resolution approving the City Council Rules is to fulfill the requirements of City Council Rule 1 and does not impair the ability of City Council to make changes to Rules at any time;


RESOLVED, That City Council hereby adopts the attached City Council Rules.
