DEPARTMENT: Planning
 
CONTACT INFORMATION: Jeff Brubaker - 919-918-7329
 
INFORMATION: The Board of Aldermen received a report on establishing an SRTS Implementation Committee on March 4.  At the meeting, the Board provided feedback that the proposed Sec. 3-24.10 should make youth members voting members.  It had showed them as being only non-voting, advisory members.
 
Staff have revised the language in the draft amendment to reflect this change.  Also, the minimum quorum number has been changed from five to eight.
 
A revised version of the amendment is in Attachment A, and a changes-tracked version is in Attachment B.
 
FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: If the ordinance is adopted, staff time will be needed to help recruit applicants to the Committee.  Each meeting may require approximately 10-20 hours of staff time, which would be 30-60 hours assuming three meetings per year.  As part of the draft FY 2014-15 budget, a Committee budget of $250 is being considered by staff.
 
RECOMMENDATION:r Staff recommend that the Board of Aldermen adopt the ordinance in Attachment A establishing the committee.
