Recommendation

 

That Council adopts the attached resolution (Attachment I) authorizing the formation of a Council Homelessness-Housing Task Force for a period of two years, beginning March 2019 through March 2021.

End

 

SUMMARY

 

Council requested that the City Manager evaluate the establishment of a standing Council Committee to focus on evaluating options to address the current homeless-housing crisis.   After evaluating the workload of the current Council Committees and staff capacity, the City Manager recommends folding the workplan of the Council Technology Application Committee (CTAC) into the Council Infrastructure Committee (CIC), eliminating CTAC as a standing Council Committee.  Additionally, the City Manager recommends establishing the Homelessness-Housing Council Task Force for a two-year period beginning in March 2019 through March 2021, to evaluate the efficacy and workload related to establishing it as a permanent Council Standing Committee.  Staff recommends that the Homelessness-Housing Council Task Force meet on a quarterly basis during this period with the option to schedule special meetings as needed.
