Title
**THIS STAFF REPORT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY FILE ID NO. 2021-282 (ITEM NO. 28A ON APRIL 6, 2021 COUNCIL AGENDA)

CONSIDERATION AND DISCUSSION OF DISTRICT CITY COUNCILMEMBERS HOLDING TOWN HALL STYLE MEETINGS AND DISCUSSION OF CITY COUNCIL POLICY 1.45, CITY COUNCIL POLICY 1.1.02, AND MUNICIPAL CODE SECTION 2419 (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

City Councilmember Cedric Hicks, newly elected to District 3, has indicated he would like to hold a digital District Town Hall style meeting for his constituents from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 17, 2021, to address public services (trees, potholes, sidewalk repairs), public safety, provide an update on COVID-19, and provide a legislative update.
City Council Policy ("CCP) 1.45, CCP 1.1.02, and Municipal Code Section 2419, which predate the City Council's transition from citywide elected seats to district elected seats, limit the ability of a City Councilmember to use City resources to host Town Halls in their District and the manner by which they would promote the Town Hall meetings to the community. City Councilmember Hicks is requesting modifications to those two policies so that District Town Hall Meetings can be held using pre-allocated City resources (per CCP 1.45) and outreach materials with the image and name of the District City Councilmember to be used to promote the event (per CCP 1.1.02 and Municipal Code Section 2419).
Staff is seeking direction from the City Council on whether it wants to consider revising CCP 1.45, CCP 1.1.02, and Municipal Code Section 2419 for this limited purpose.

2. APPROVE the attached updated CCP 1.45...
