Background/Alt Actions

BACKGROUND

Government Code Section 36934 requires that all ordinances be read in full prior to Council taking action on the ordinance.  By listing the ordinance title on the Council meeting agenda, Council may determine that the title has been read.  In addition, by placing an item on the Consent Calendar to waive further reading of all ordinances whose titles appear on the public agenda, the reading requirement set forth in the Government Code is satisfied once Council approves the Consent Calendar item.

This provides an opportunity to streamline the process and shorten Council meetings and is in compliance with the Government Code regarding the introduction and adoption of ordinances.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION

The City Attorney or City Clerk would read aloud all ordinance titles prior to Council introducing or adopting any ordinance.
