CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS AGENDA

Monday, January 13, 2014

CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 210 LOTTIE STREET BELLINGHAM, WASHINGTON 98225

COMMITTEE MEETINGS, 1:00 PM

REGULAR MEETING, 7:00 PM


THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ARE HEARD IN THE REGULAR MEETING ONLY:
CALL TO ORDER
ANNOUNCEMENTS & UPCOMING MEETINGS:

The City Council tries to create consistency in the timing of the more active and substantive committee meetings. However, there are occasions in which this would create an inefficient structure in relation to other committee meetings, as was the case for setting this agenda. The Planning Committee will usually meet at 9:00 AM and Public Works/Public Safety Committee will usually meet at 10:30 AM on Monday mornings when practical. The Council President and Committee Chairs reserve the right to make adjustments for a more efficient use of time and resources. Agendas are published on the Council's "Meeting Materials" webpage on Thursdays prior to a meeting, allowing for the public to have notice of changes.

Bellingham City Council meets all requirements of the State of Washington Open Meetings Act.
