PURPOSE

 

This agenda item will allow the City Council to consider a resolution removing and appointing members to the Home Rule Charter Commission and the Citizens Police Advisory Committee.

 

Citizen Police Advisory Committee member Mark Guerra was removed from the Committee due to lack of attendance. Mayor Riley is recommending that applicant Oscar Solis fill the spot vacated by Mr. Guerra.

Council Member David Edwards appointed Larry Proffitt and Phyllis McMillan

Mayor Riley appointed Irene Baldridge, Mike K. Davis, Jr., and David Smith

Council Member Benny Martinez appointed Phillip Riddle and Carol Poss

Council Member David Jordan appointed Pedro Esquivel and Linda Barker

Council Member Belinda Ealy appointed Belinda Benavides and Karen Lowe

 

Council directed staff to add an agenda item to the next City Council meeting to allow Council Member Monica Alcocer to appoint two of the remaining five (5) applicants.

 

Council Member Monica Alcocer has selected Oscar Solis - Linkwood and Marcia Dreiss - Seneca Estates as her appointees.

 

Meanwhile, Pedro Esquivel who was appointed to the Home Rule Charter Commission on June 6th has withdrawn his application and apologetically declined the appointment.
