The Task Force was charged by the <br />City Council to review the roles, responsibilities, and appointment processes of various <br />City boards, commissions and committees. Since its formation, the Task Force has <br />diligently worked to craft new ideas to improve existing committees' structures, roles, <br />and duties. Based upon this work, the Task Force recommends extending the term of <br />the City Council Committee on Tidelands Management, and amending the Coastal /Bay <br />Water Quality Citizens Advisory Committee ( "Water Quality "), the Environmental Quality <br />Affairs Citizens Advisory Committee ( "EQAC "), and disestablishing the Special Events <br />Advisory Committee ( "SEAC "). The Task Force's work is on -going and, in the future, it <br />anticipates bringing more recommendations to the City Council for its consideration, <br />including possible revisions to the Harbor Commission. <br />Further, City Council Policy A -6 (Open Meeting Policies) will need to be amended to <br />reflect pending changes in the City Charter regarding the schedule and location of <br />regular City Council meetings, and to add correspondence submission requirements. <br />RECOMMENDATIONS: <br />a) Adopt Resolution No. 2012 -114 extending the term of the City Council Committee on <br />Tidelands Management. <br />b) Adopt Resolution No. 2012 -115 amending the Coastal /Bay Water Quality Advisory <br />Committee and reestablishing it as the Water Quality /Coastal Tidelands <br />Management Committee. <br />1 <br />
