2.04.070: SUMMARY ACTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL:
When in preparing the agenda for any regular meeting of the city council, the city manager determines that two (2) or more agenda items for such council meeting are of a routine and noncontroversial nature, such items may be placed upon a summary action calendar, which vote shall have the same effect as a separate vote upon each calendar item individually. Prior to a final vote on the summary action calendar, any member of the city council may object to the inclusion of any item as a part of the summary action calendar, and upon such objection, such item shall be thereupon removed from the summary action calendar, and may be considered separately immediately after a vote is taken on the remaining summary action calendar or at such later time as the city council may determine. Any question, debate, or discussion regarding an item on the summary action calendar, except in the nature of clarification or brief explanation of the content of an item, shall be deemed an objection to inclusion of such item in the summary action calendar. All items on the summary action calendar which require public hearings shall be open for hearing simultaneously, and the mayor shall announce, or direct the city manager to announce, the titles of all such items. If any member of the public is present and indicates a desire to comment upon any item in the summary action calendar, such item shall thereupon be forthwith excluded from the summary action calendar and considered separately after a vote is taken on the remaining items comprising the summary action calendar. (Prior code § 2.04.070)
