COMMISSIONER CAN, I'M TRYING TO BE GOOD ABOUT MUTING WHEN I'M NOT TALKING.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

BUT, UH, SO, UH, DID WE MISS THE

[D. FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS ]

FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS? OH, I'M SORRY, BECAUSE THAT WAS WHERE YEAH.

OH, WE CAN HAVE FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS. I REALIZED, YEAH, I SPED THROUGH THAT.

LET'S GO BACK TO FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS BECAUSE I HAD THE COURSE ON THAT ITEM, THAT VICE CHAIR, BREWER, RAMIREZ, AND I HAD PUT ON.

ARE THERE ANY FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS? I'M SORRY, I DIDN'T ASK COMMISSIONER KING WILL.

THANK YOU.

UH, SO YES, I WOULD LIKE TO PUT THE ITEM, UH, THAT WAS ON OUR PREVIOUS AGENDA, BUT DROPPED OFF BECAUSE ONE OF THE CO-SPONSORS IS NO LONGER ON OUR COMMISSION.

SO I'D LIKE TO, I'M JUST GETTING IT BACK ON THE AGENDA SO THAT WE CAN FOLLOW UP WITH THE WORK THAT WAS STARTED WITH THIS ITEM.

AND IT IS A DISCUSSION POSSIBLE ACTION AND SUPPORTIVE, INCREASED COMMUNITY FLOOD PROTECTION AND FLOOD RESILIENCY EFFORTS IN RESPONSE TO CLIMATE CHANGE.

OKAY.

THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

AND, UM, AND I'M WILLING TO CO-SPONSOR I WAS AN ORIGINAL CO-SPONSOR ON THAT.

UM, IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER.

JUST TAKES TWO TO CO-SPONSOR SO YEAH, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

AND DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF WHEN YOU'D WANT TO HAVE THAT? WELL, YOU KNOW, GIVEN WHAT WE'RE GOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW AND RECOVERING INDEPENDENTLY PANDEMIC AND EVERYTHING, THE VACCINATION PROGRAMS THAT WE'RE INVOLVED WITH THROUGHOUT THE CITY, I'M NOT TRYING TO PUSH THIS TOO HARD, BUT I DO THINK THAT IT IS KIND OF TIMELY WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE JUST WENT THROUGH AND CLIMATE CHANGE AND HOW THAT DOES AFFECT OUR RESILIENCY.

SO I THINK IF WE LET IT GO FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS HERE, MAYBE A MONTH OR SO, AND THEN FOLLOW UP ON IT BENEFICIAL.

OKAY.

THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

I'LL AND I'LL CIRCLE BACK TO IT IN PROBABLY A MONTH.
