Ann Arbor City Council Voting Chart for the Meeting of September 6, 2022
Today’s agenda has several items of interest. There are two nominations, thirteen items on the Consent Agenda, one ordinance at its first reading for long-awaited right to renew, no public hearings for ordinances at their second reading, and a feasibility study for a traditional municipal electric utility and different structure called a Sustainable Energy Utility.
Of particular interest:
- CA-7 authorizes the city to apply for USDOT Safe Streets grants.
- C-1 is the Right to Renew ordinance, which would allow tenants to renew their leases unless a landlord has just cause not to offer them a renewal.
- DC-1 is a resolution to ask the State to pass SB58 and HB4314, holding polluters (more) accountable for polluting our drinking water.
- DS-1 is the agreement funding a feasibility study for municipal power and the Sustainable Energy Utility.
