Hello Neighbors,


The next City Council meeting is Monday, August 6 at 5:00 pm in the Vincent Griego Chambers, basement level of City Hall:  Agenda.

  • Police Oversight Ordinance O-18-23 (Benton, Winter):  This bill amends the Police Oversight Ordinance to make changes recommended by the Police Oversite Board (POB) to the Council and to modify the ordinance for consistency with the DOJ settlement agreement.  It increases the annual Civilian Police Oversight Agency (CPOA) budget in order to hire a data research analyst and a community engagement specialist, allows the POB to get unedited raw data from APD, gives the POB subpoena power, changes the requirement for the Chief’s response to POB disciplinary action recommendations, and allows the POB to make policy recommendations to the council.  This bill will be on the agenda for the August 13 Finance & Government Operations Committee (FGO) meeting.
