CCEC/Common Council Executive Committee

4:30p room 201 CCB


5. 46407 Adopting the final report and recommendations from the President's Work Group on Police & Community Relations

This report was the work of the CCOC Subcommitte on Police and Community Relations before we changed the committee to the President's Work Group to facilitate reporting in a more timely manner. The recommendations will move forward to the Council meeting later Tuesday night. If you want to speak you are welcome to join us but please consider registering at the Council meeting. Here is a link to the report.

8. 46867 Amending Section 33.13(2) of the Madison General Ordinances to create the position of Common Council Chief of Staff. 

9. 46793 Creating the classification of Common Council Chief of Staff in CG21, Range 18, and creating a new position in the Common Council Office budget as a 1.0 FTE Common Council Chief of Staff in CG21, Range 18. 

As the newly elected Council President, I am now the chair of the CCEC. We are reviewing two proposals regarding the creation of the position of a Council chief of staff,  an ordinance to create the position and a proposal to classify it in Comp Group 21. This is the continuation of the Council efforts to provide improved capacity and to prepare for redistricting.

Common Council 

6:30p room 201 CCB

22. 46407 Adopting the final report and recommendations from the President's Work Group on Police & Community Relations. Sponsors: Marsha A. Rummel, Shiva Bidar-Sielaff, Sheri Carter, Denise DeMarb and Rebecca Kemble

24. 46633 Approving a Certified Survey Map of property owned by Madison Kipp Corporation and Goodman Community Center, Inc. located at 201 Corry Street and 214 Waubesa Street; 6th Ald. Dist.

Goodman Community Center is able to expand the Brassworks facility because Madison Kipp Corp agreed to sell/gift some of their land from parking lot to the Center. The CSM records the boundaries of the new legal parcel. At Plan Commission last week, the new reconfiguration of the parking lot was approved as a conditional use.

42. 47007 Executing a Purchase of Services contract with Legacy Architecture, Inc. to assist in the preparation of the Historic Preservation Plan and associated activities. Sponsors: Shiva Bidar-Sielaff, Marsha A. Rummel, Steve King and Michael E. Verveer

With the selection of Legacy Architecture, Inc, we are about to begin phase 2 of the revision of the Landmarks ordinance. The first meeting of the Landmarks Ordinance Review Committee will be June 29 5p place TBD. Alder Ledelll Zellers will replace former Ald Chris Schmidt, oherwise all the members remain the same (Ald Shiva Bidar, Ald Steve King, Ald Mark Clear, and myself). We hope that interested residents will participate in the next phase where we review the standards and guidelines of each historic district. 

48. 47034 SUBSTITUTE - Authorizing (a vendor to be identified by May 2, 2017) Sankofa Behavioral & Community Health Inc. to provide Housing-Focused Street Outreach Team services - that will include identifying, engaging and connecting chronically homeless persons to local support services and systems with the primary goal of facilitating their entry into stable housing. Sponsors: Samba Baldeh, Maurice S. Cheeks, Matthew J. Phair and Marsha A. Rummel

Selecting Sankofa Behavioral & Community Health Inc team for the street outreach services is a big change to the city's capacity and having the assistance of a qualified provider like this is long overdue.

58. RECONSIDERATION - Requested by Ald. Zellers 58. 46812 Amending the 2017 Adopted Capital Budget to increase the funding authorization for the Capitol East Parking Garage project by $1,890,465, and amending the Graef-USA, Inc design contract to increase the design fee by $45,600. Sponsors: Paul R. Soglin, Ledell Zellers and Marsha A. Rummel

This 15 vote item failed by one vote at the last council meeting. Since Alder Zellers was not in attendance, she is able to ask for reconsideration.
