The Chair asked the Administration to have all future appointees reach out and talk with Rules Committee members in advance of the meeting.  Council Vice President Crescimbeni requested that when the appointees contact Committee Members  they provide the number of the Resolution for the appointment.


Council Vice President Crescimbeni reported that he had been contacted by a member of the Elder Affairs Commission informing him that there had been slots on the Commission that had not been filled and that some of the Commissioners wondered if the Commission still had a charge or mandate.  He suggested that the Committee consider resuming the reviews and assessment of boards and commissions in the Special Meetings.  The Chair said that the Special Meetings could very well focus on boards and commissions rather continue to review of Council rules.


There being no further business, the agenda meeting was adjourned at 12:40 P.M.
