Citizens Agenda for Meetings on April 24, 2018



Citizens Agenda
Council meeting agendas are often difficult for people to navigate. Filled with jargon and legal requirements on how an item must be listed, it can be a challenge to determine what Council members are actually discussing or deciding on.
 What follows is a staff interpretation of the agendas.
The official published agendas and supporting materials can be found here:  http://publicdocuments.provo.org/sirepub/meet.aspx

Adjournment



What do those numbers at the ends of the agenda items mean?
    • Items on the agenda are given a file number by Council staff or Community Development staff to help with tracking the item through the legislative process and to organize the supporting materials.
    • You may find it helpful in cases where an item may be worded a little differently on different agendas. Matching up that file number helps you see that it is the same issue.
Council meetings are broadcast live and available later on demand at https://www.youtube.com/user/ProvoCityCouncil
