TO: MAYOR WYTHE AND HOMER CITY COUNCIL
FROM: MELISSA JACOBSEN, CMC, DEPUTY CITY CLERK
DATE: MARCH 12, 2014
SUBJECT: PORT AND HARBOR ADVISORY COMMISSION MEETING SCHEDULE DISCUSSION
At their February 26, 2014 regular meeting, the Port and Harbor Advisory Commission considered the memorandum from City Clerk Johnson regarding advisory bodies amending their meeting schedules.
Chair Ulmer commented that the Commission always seems to have a lot going on and they need to get their business done.
There was discussion around the issue that some groups have regular instances with not making their quorum at the last minute which results in wasted cost of staff compiling information, preparing packets, and other meeting preparation. Then they want to schedule special meetings to make up for the meeting that cancelled.
It was suggested that there have been challenges for the Commission in July to make a quorum, so if they have to eliminate a meeting, that would be one. Aside from that, the group does a good job of giving timely notification of absences and works to keep their meetings within 2 hours.
The consensus of the Commission is to leave the meeting schedule as it is.
