BACKGROUND
Annually, the Mayor requests that the City Council appoint members of the City Council to the City and Area Wide/Outside Agency Committees. The full City Council was asked to provide their input on any requests of appointments or changes.
At the January 26, 2021 City Council Meeting, the Mayor submitted her recommendations for appointments to City Committees and Area Wide/Outside Agency Committees for the 2021 calendar year, which were determined by Council's expressed interest, seniority, and to balance the workload among the full City Council. After a lengthy discussion, the City Council voted to establish an Ad Hoc Committee comprised of Councilmember Park, Councilmember Jain, and Mayor Gillmor to review the Committee assignments, return to Council with a revised plan, and keep the 2020 Committee assignments in place until the new appointments are approved by Council.

DISCUSSION
The Ad Hoc Committee on 2021 City Council Committee Assignments met and discussed City and Area Wide/Outside Agency recommended appointments on February 10, 2021.
