IV.                     BACKGROUND

Carson’s Mayor in the past, has determined the seating arrangement of individual Council Members on the dais.  Prior to the above action, the Council Policy & Procedure (CPP) 1.02.03, adopted by the City Council on September 17, 2015 (Exhibit No. 1) allows the Mayor to determine the selection of seating assignments for the Mayor and Councilmembers and includes both the City Clerk and City Treasurer.

On January 28, 2019, a special meeting was held by the City Council and requested that each Councilmember seat be numbered 1-5 with assigned seating as follows:

1.                     Councilmember Lula Davis-Holmes would be in seat No. 1 (Farthest right of Mayor)

2.                     Councilmember Jim Dear would be in seat No. 2 (Seat just right of Mayor)

3.                     Mayor Albert Robles would be assigned seat No. 3 (Middle of Council dais)

4.                     Mayor Pro Tem Cedric Hicks would be assigned seat No. 4 (Seat just left of Mayor)

5.                     Councilmember Jawane Hilton would be assigned seat No. 5 (Farthest left of Mayor)

On February 6, 2020, a special meeting was held by the City Council and the issue of the seating of the Mayor Pro Tem was settled by allowing the Mayor Pro Tem to sit in either Seat No. 2 or Seat No. 4.  The three other seats remain to be discussed.

 

V.                     FISCAL IMPACT

There is no fiscal impact for assigned seating.
