Motion to amend council liaison assignments

Body

 

Prepared By:

Lucy Lucero, Executive Assistant, City Manager’s Office

 

PURPOSE:

Does city council support approval of amending the council liaison assignments to the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) Board, Arapahoe County Transportation Forum, Littleton Arts and Culture Commission, Fine Arts Board, South Suburban Parks and Recreation (SSPR) Subcommittee, and Regional Transportation District (RTD) Local Governmental meetings? 

 

PRESENTATIONS:

                     Staff Presenter(s):                                          Jerry Valdes, Mayor

                     Additional Presenter(s):                     N/A

 

SUMMARY:

When Karina Elrod vacated her at-large position on city council in May 2021, six liaison vacancies were created. Mayor Jerry Valdes will be assigned as the liaison to the DRCOG Board and Council Member Grove will remain the second liaison. On the Arapahoe County Transportation Forum, Council Member Grove will be assigned as the new liaison and Keith Reester, Public Works and Utilities Director, will be assigned as the alternate staff member liaison. Council Member Rudnicki will be assigned as the liaison on the Littleton Arts and Culture Commission.  Council Member Milliman will be assigned as the liaison on the Fine Arts Board and as alternate liaison on the SSPR Subcommittee. Keith Reester will be assigned as the new staff member liaison to the RTD Local Government meetings.

 

PRIOR ACTIONS OR DISCUSSIONS:

Council originally appointed 2020-2021 liaisons during the December 17, 2019 council meeting and amended the appointments during the April 7, 2020 council meeting.

 

ANALYSIS:

Staff Analysis

N/A

 

Council Goal, Objective, and/or Guiding Principle

Littleton will remain ENGAGED and civic-minded in all matters affecting the direction and priorities of city government and the community.

 

Fiscal Impacts

There are no direct fiscal impacts to participating in liaison roles, however, failure to participate could impact grants and other funding partnership opportunities.

 

Alternatives

Do not assign liaisons, which is against best practice and may reduce partnership opportunities, including grant opportunities.

 

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends council assign liaisons.

 

PROPOSED MOTION:

I move to amend the council liaison assignments by approving the appointment of Mayor Valdes as the liaison to the DRCOG Board, Council Member Grove as the liaison to the Arapahoe County Transportation Forum with Keith Reester assigned as the alternate staff member liaison, Council Member Rudnicki as the liaison on the Littleton Arts and Culture Commission, Council Member Milliman assigned as the liaison on the Fine Arts Board and alternate liaison on the SSPR Subcommittee, and Keith Reester assigned as the new staff member liaison to the RTD Local Government meetings.
