Please review Minutes from our last meeting: SWCC Minutes 4/18/19

The currently approved by-laws are: SWCC.ByLaws.Feb2018.pdf

The proposed by-laws we reviewed and need to vote on May 16th are: SWCC.ByLaws.April 17, 2019 draft.pdf.

Suggestions from the 4/18 meeting were:

  • Special attention needed in the “Voting Members", Section 4.C. Input requested.

  • 4.A.1. Neighborhood Associations (NA) – wording may be too weak as anybody could put together a NA.  City is reviewing qualifications or guidelines to become a NA but there is much resistance to the City.  In the past, boundaries identified coverage specific areas.

  • SW Common Council does not have to follow City’s defined and specified boundaries but rather those recognized by the SWCC.

  • NA’s should provide a one-page informational summary of who they are, their goals, information about their meetings and contact information.

  • NA’s should have constituents who live in the neighborhood.

  • In 6.C.Switch the numbers needed for Quorum for a meeting to five and Voting to seven.

We subsequently on 4/25 received an email from MaryDan Cooper with these excellent suggestions:  SWCC - Feedback on 4-17-2019 Draft Bylaws.docx
