SUBJECT:
Title
CONSIDERATION OF CITY GOVERNANCE POLICIES RELATED TO DISTRICT-ELECTION CITIES

Body
I. SUMMARY

The City of Carson retained Jerome Horton as a consultant to identify governance policy areas impacted by the City's transition from an at-large election to district election city. In part, Mr. Horton will advise the City Council on best district governance practices utilized by different government bodies, including Federal, State, and local government entities. His scope is to identify core values for governing within the district form of government, core values for working with community-based organizations, outreach and education policies and activities, a process for identifying concerns of interested parties and developing resolutions, protocols for handling constituent services, conflict resolution and problem solving, community engagement processes, definitions of District Events versus City Events, and budget and capital improvement policies.
In connection with the above, a Governance Operations Model ("Model") for the City will be presented for consideration by the Mayor and City Council for ultimate adoption. The Model will include principles, protocols, core values and policies, designed to guide both individual district and citywide governance in the City. Initially, and for purposes of this staff report, a draft Model is being proposed so that the City Council may consider it and provide feedback and further direction and suggestions for modifications.
