NO SMOKING POLICY <br /> <br /> <br />BACKGROUND REVIEW: <br />In support of a smoke-free work and play environment, all City <br />departments have agreed to prohibit smoking in City vehicles and inside areas previously <br />designated as smoking. Currently, City Council has the discretion to decide the smoking <br />policy for the Council Chambers, the Mayor’s Office, the Community Center, public areas at <br />ndth <br />the Centennial Commons, as well as the E.O.C. room, 2 floor room 6, and the 4 floor <br />conference room during evening hours when used for public meetings. I would like Council’s <br />approval to prohibit smoking in these discretionary areas; with your approval I will amend the <br />Administrative Regulations accordingly. <br /> <br /> 5.

CITY MANAGER’S REPORT <br />2007 University City Calendar <br />As we begin to prepare for the a vital component is the <br />scheduling of Council meetings. The Charter simply states that Council will meet once a <br />month. You decide how many meetings, what time, when and where you meet. Based on <br />feedback, I’ve prepared two sample calendars Option 1 with Council meetings on first and <br />third Mondays (with the exception of April due to Passover). Meetings are moved forward <br />to the next Tuesday in the event that a Federal or religious holiday falls on the regular <br />date. There is only one meeting set for July, August and December. While this <br />scheduling method provides consistency in terms of meetings, a draw back would be that <br />Tuesday meetings will be in conflict. There are occasions that the Arts and Letters <br />Commission, Historic Preservation Commission or Pension Board might meet on the same <br />night. Thursdays are the only “meeting free” night consistently. Option 2 represents a <br />Monday meeting only schedule. Quarterly study sessions have been incorporated into <br />both options. What are your preferences? <br /> <br />Based on feedback, I will proceed with the Study Session schedule identified below: <br />August 21: 6:30 PM Full Session, Sunshine Law and Public Liability Training <br /> 2 <br /> <br />
