A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, AMENDING THE PARKS AND RECREATION ADVISORY COMMISSION BYLAWS TO ESTABLISH MONTHLY MEETINGS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF DECEMBER.
WHEREAS, The Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the City Manager and the City Council; and
WHEREAS, In 2009 in an effort to reduce expenditures and lessen the amount of staff time spent on preparation of materials for meetings and overtime wages for meeting attendance after hours, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission voluntarily reduced their number of annual meetings; and
WHEREAS, Currently the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission has a complete appointment of commissioners and the lack of a quorum would be unlikely and the issues, projects, and concerns with the City of Homer parks, beaches, and trails have increased over the past few years; and
WHEREAS, The Commission finds it is necessary to resume monthly meetings to complete the business before them, with the exception of the month of December; and
WHEREAS, The Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission introduced the bylaws amendment at their regular meeting held March 17, 2011 and took final action to approve the amendment at their regular meeting on June 16, 2011; and
WHEREAS, The Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission regular meetings will be held monthly, with the exception of December, on the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of Homer, Alaska, hereby amends the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission bylaws to establish regular monthly meetings with the exception of December.
