Meeting Agenda available here.
Meeting time: 5:11 PM - 6:36 PM
Members present: Reva Trammell, Chair [8th District], Committee member Cynthia Newbille [7th District], Councilman Parker Agelasto [5th District], and Committee member Chris Hilbert [3rd District] arrived at 5:15 PM.
No public comment. One individual got up to speak but she spoke to an item on the Agenda and was asked to save her comments until the paper came before the committee.
The minutes were approved unanimously.
Council discussion of Ord. 2012-232 to remove bicycles, scooters, and mopeds from city owned trees, poles, and signs after 72 hours. The paper was withdrawn and will be reintroduced at another time with revisions.
Council discussion of Ord. 2013-12 which would add a section to the City Code stating that individuals parking more than 12 inches from the curb could be fined $20. Councilman Hilbert was very resistant to the idea. He said he was willing to make it 24 inches. Later at the suggestion of Councilwoman Newbille, the ordinance was recommended to be amended to make it 18 inches. All cities in Virginia have the 12 inch requirement, the only exception is Chesterfield Council that has the 18 inch rule.
