Title
Action on a Resolution Amending In Part Resolution No. 19-8657, Setting the Number of Regular Meetings of the Board of Library Trustees, and Approving the 2020 Board of Library Trustees Calendar of Meetings

Report
BACKGROUND
City Charter section 1003 states that each of the boards and commissions of the City shall hold regular meetings as required by ordinance. City Code section 2.120.030 states that each board or commission shall hold regular meetings at the times and on the days indicated by resolution of the City Council, and that such resolutions may be amended from time to time by further Council resolution.
