One bill, Ordinance 2008-27 amending the Ordinance Code to permit dogs to be present in the outdoor eating areas of restaurants, was marked for deferral as it had been deferred in the Rules Committee earlier in the day. Chairman Shad, the sponsor of the bill, intends to ask the committee if they wish to take up the bill. The Chairman noted that item #9, Ordinance 2007-1136 amending the General Employee’s Pension Plan, has several pages of attachments from the Council Auditor at the end of the agenda summarizing the bill and providing brief pros and cons of the proposed defined contribution system.
Chief Deputy General Counsel Cindy Laquidara will be present to review and answer any questions about Ordinance 2008-71 approving a settlement agreement between the City and Ikon Office Solutions for library copy machines.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 1:33 p.m.
