1. PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD (NOT TO EXCEED A TOTAL OF 15 MINUTES):
The Council values your input. Individual speakers are limited to three minutes or as directed by the Chair. To address the Council you are asked to fill out a Request To Speak form and provide it to City Staff PRIOR TO this part of the agenda. This time is reserved to accept comments from the public on matters ON THIS AGENDA ONLY. Direction to staff may be given; however, State law does not allow action to be taken by the Council on these matters at this meeting. The law requires that notice be given to the public at large to allow for full disclosure and discussion of important public issues. To have City Council discussions and decisions on unnoticed items would prevent that type of public input necessary to make government decisions.
2. JOINT STUDY SESSION REGARDING COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT FUNDING PRIORITIES. The City Council will conduct a joint study session with the Block Grants Advisory Committee to discuss general needs in the community and clarify funding priorities for the allocation of Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds for Fiscal Year 2012-13.
