I move to authorize the County Attorney’s Office to schedule and advertise Ordinance No. 17-26 regarding communications by advisory boards.
• At its regular meeting of March 7, 2017, the Board directed this office to prepare an ordinance requiring all advisory boards to direct their communications to the Board. In response, a Request for Legal Services was opened on the Board’s behalf.
• Attached is a draft ordinance amending Article VI of Chapter 2-2 of the County’s Code of Ordinances to require “miscellaneous boards, councils, commissions and similar entities” to direct their communications to the Board, except when expressly required by law to direct them to others.
• Per our standard practices, we request that the Board authorize the County Attorney’s Office to schedule and advertise a public hearing to adopt the ordinance.
