FROM THE DESK OF <br />T 310 265 4490 JEFFREY LEWIS F (310) 872-5389 <br />Via Hand Delivery <br />May 8, 2012 <br />Hon, Anthony Misetich, Mayor <br />City of Rancho Palos Verdes <br />30940 Hawthorne Blvd. <br />Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275 <br />Dear Mayor Misetich, <br />In anticipation of this evening's joint meeting between the city council and <br />planning commission, I have prepared the below questions in lieu of my <br />comments for discussion purposes. I have nothing new to offer concerning <br />the proposed rule revisions that have not been previously voiced by the <br />public. The below represents a sampling of questions that I have heard <br />members of the public ask when the issue of revising council procedures <br />arises in conversation. <br />Questions re Section 5 and the Agenda Setting Process <br />1. What is the "problem" that the subcommittee has identified that <br />needs to be fixed by changing Section 5 concerning the setting of <br />agendas? <br />2. What can the city council do to allay concerns about stifling the abil- <br />ity of the minority to be able to get issues on the agenda? <br />a. Query: if one city council member wanted to agendize the issue <br />of zero based budgeting over the objection of the other four <br />council members, could the issue; still get agendized tinder the <br />current Section 5? <br />3. Section 5's agenda setting process was changed by a 3-2 vote of the <br />city council in March. <br />a. Since then, with the new Section 5 in place., is the council saris- lt, <br />AI�CC <br />fied with the new agenda setting process? n J <br />FED FROM <br />4 1 ADE A PART OFCIL MEETING OOFFICE OF TH <br />CARLA MORREA <br />
