WE'RE GOING TO APPROVE THE MINUTES FROM THE JULY 14TH MEETING.

TAKE A MOMENT TO REVIEW THE MINUTES AND, UM, IN JUST A MINUTE, I WILL ASK YOU IF THERE ARE ANY CORRECTIONS.

ALL RIGHT.

ARE THERE ANY CORRECTIONS TO THE MINUTES FOR JULY 14TH? YES, I HAVE.

UM, IN THE END ATTENDANCE, GEORGE CORVEL AND I WERE IN ATTENDANCE TO THAT MEETING AND I WAS WONDERING IF WE COULD BE ADDED

[00:05:04]

AND THAT IS THAT A CORRECTION THAT LISA RODRIGUEZ COULD MAKE TO OUR MINUTES.

THANK YOU.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER CORRECTIONS TO THE MINUTES? IF THERE ARE NO FURTHER CORRECTIONS, THE MINUTES ARE APPROVED UNDER NEW BUSINESS ITEM TWO A IS READING THE VALUES NORMS. AND, UM, THIS WILL BE QUICK JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO.

WE HAD BRAINSTORMED THIS DOCUMENT TOGETHER AND YOU ALL SHOULD HAVE A COPY OF IT, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE IT WITH YOU AND THE PUBLIC AND IT'S FINISHED FORM.

AND, UM, MR. , IF I COULD ALSO SHARE MY SCREEN AND MAYBE YOU ALREADY GAVE EVERYONE PERMISSION, SO LET ME SEE.

YES.

OKAY.

WE ALL SEE THAT.

GREAT.

SO THESE ARE OUR GUIDING VALUES NORMS, UH, AS I KIND OF COORDINATED THEM BASED ON ALL OF OUR NOTES, UM, AND PERIODS AND DOWN, UH, TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITIES.

AND I HOPE THAT WE ALL SEE THIS AND, AND IT RESONATES WITH US AND THE WORK THAT WE'RE DOING WITH THIS COMMISSION, WE HAVE AT THE TOP INTEGRITY, BE WHO WE ARE AND FOLLOW THROUGH WITH OUR COMMITMENT, RESPECT, LISTEN TO EACH OTHER'S OPINIONS, HONOR EACH OTHER'S EFFORTS AND SHOW UP ON TIME.

INCLUSIVITY PRIORITIZE THE PUBLIC INTEREST AND NEEDS OF ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS, DIGNITY CENTER, DIVERSE VOICES, AND PERSPECTIVES IN EVERY INTERACTION WITH EACH OTHER.

AND THE PUBLIC PATIENTS TAKE INPUT WITH AN OPEN MIND AND HEART AND GIVE OTHERS THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.

FAIRNESS, ALL VOICES MUST BE HEARD AND MAKE DECISIONS SUPPORTED BY DATA, AS WELL AS THE PERSPECTIVES AND NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY.

TRUST HONOR, THE EXPERTISE AND STRENGTHS OF ALL COMMISSIONERS AND TRUST THAT WE WORK IN THE BEST INTEREST OF FULL BODY.

FINALLY PRIORITIZATION USE THE CITY CHARTER AS THE GUIDE FOR THE ORDER OF IMPORTANCE AND URGENCY.

AGAIN, THIS DOCUMENT WAS CREATED BY ALL OF US ON JULY 7TH, 2021.

AND I LISTED ALL OF OUR NAMES AT THE BOTTOM, ALONG WITH CHRISTINE GRENADA'S AND PATRICIA FRAGA, WHO ARE ALSO PART OF OUR TEAM.

AND, UM, MATT, IF YOU WANT, UM, TO BE INCLUDED ON THIS TOO, I'M HAPPY TO ADD YOUR NAME AND THEN WE CAN CREATE THIS AS A BACKUP DOCUMENT.

UM, SO I WILL STOP SHARING HERE.

I HOPE EVERYBODY, UM, IS PROUD OF THIS DOCUMENT.

I REALLY AM PROUD OF THE CONVERSATION WE HAD THAT GOT US TO THAT POINT.

SO WE'LL GO ON TO THE NEXT ITEM.

I SORT OF BUSINESSES TO BE UPDATE FROM THE PUBLIC FORUM WORKING GROUP, VICE CHAIR, GONZALEZ CAN PROVIDE THOSE UPDATES.

THANK YOU, SHAREPOINT.

SO NOT MUCH OF AN UPDATE, UH, FROM THE PREVIOUS PUBLIC FORUM UPDATE, UH, OUTLOOK CALENDAR INVITES HAVE GONE OUT TO ALL COMMISSIONERS WITH THE CURRENT DATES TIMES AND LOCATIONS OF OUR FUTURE PUBLIC FORUMS. THERE ARE, THERE IS ONE UPDATE IN TERMS OF VENUE, UH, FOR DISTRICT TWO, WHICH IS CURRENTLY SET FOR, GIVE ME ONE SECOND, SORRY.

UM, DISTRICT TWO, WHICH IS CURRENTLY SET, UH, OF THE DATE TUESDAY, AUGUST 10TH FROM SIX TO 8:00 PM.

THAT VENUE HAS MOVED FROM THE DITMAR RECREATION CENTER TO MENDEZ MIDDLE SCHOOL MENDEZ MIDDLE SCHOOL IS ON 5, 1 0 6 VILLAGE SQUARE DRIVE AND THE 7 8 7 4 4 ZIP CODE.

SO THIS IS SOUTHEAST AUSTIN, UH, SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 71 AND JUST EAST OF .

SO AFTER THIS EVENING'S MEETING, I WILL UPDATE THE OUTLOOK CALENDAR INVITE FOR THAT AUGUST 10TH DATE.

SO Y'ALL HAVE THE MOST UP TO DATE LOCATION.

UM, THE SECOND UPDATE IN TERMS OF, UH, VENUES AND DATES IS THAT THE WORKING GROUP HAS, UH, CONTINUED DISCUSSIONS ON A VIRTUAL OPPORTUNITY.

UM, NO DATE OR TIME SET JUST YET, BUT THE GROUP DID TALK THAT WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT.

SO MAYBE A TIME, UH, A TIME OF DAY THAT WE HAVE NOT YET, UM, EXECUTED WITH THE REST OF THE FORUMS. SO POSSIBLY MAYBE SOMETIME OVER LUNCH DURING THE WEEK OR EARLY IN THE MORNING ON A SATURDAY, BUT AGAIN, UH, NO CONFIRMATION AND WE WILL CIRCLE BACK AT THE NEXT, UH, WEDNESDAY MEETING WITH THAT VIRTUAL DATE AND TIME.

THAT IS ALL FOR TWO ONE IN TERMS OF THE UPDATES FROM VENUES AND DATES.

SHAREPOINT DOES.

THANK YOU.

AND CAN YOU REMIND THE COMMISSION WHERE WE CAN FIND THAT LIST OF DATES AND LOCATIONS?

[00:10:03]

SO, SO THEY HAVE BEEN ADDED TO OUTLOOK CALENDAR INVITES, UM, AND THERE WAS A LIST SHARED, UM, AT THE PREVIOUS, UM, WEDNESDAY MEETING.

UH, I DON'T THINK I'VE ACTUALLY SENT THAT OUT AGAIN.

SO THAT IS, UH, THAT IS A GREAT IDEA AND I WILL DO SO.

UM, SO IT WILL BE A WORD DOCUMENT THAT IS UPDATED, UM, FOR THE VENUES, BUT THEY SHOULD BE ALL ON THE OUTLOOK CALENDAR.

AND I WILL SEND OUT THAT REVISED LIST AGAIN AT THE END OF THE STUDENT.

SURE.

I THINK THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR SOME OF OUR COMMISSIONERS WHO HAVE BEEN AWAY FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

YEAH.

ARE VERY WELCOME.

THANKS FOR THAT NOTE.

UH, ALSO I'LL JUST THROW IN, SINCE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PUBLIC PUBLIC FORUMS, UH, A QUICK REMINDER THAT WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO HAVE THE COMMISSIONERS, ALL OF US FACILITATE THESE BREAKOUT SESSIONS IN THE PUBLIC FORUMS TOMORROW AND ON SATURDAY USING THAT DOCUMENT PROVIDED TO YOU LAST WEEK, THAT WAS TITLED FACILITATING THE ICRC PUBLIC FORUM GROUP BREAKOUT SESSION.

AND, UH, AND THAT WAS EMAILED TO Y'ALL, UM, AS A LIST JUST IN THE EMAIL, BUT ALSO THERE'S A DOCUMENT ATTACHED THAT, UM, THAT HAS ALL OF THAT INCLUDED.

SO, SO YOU DO HAVE THAT AND SOME OF YOU WHO WERE THERE IN PERSON LAST WEEK SHOULD HAVE A PHYSICAL COPY OF IT AS WELL.

SO, UM, YOU'RE WELCOME TO BRING THAT WITH YOU ON THURSDAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TO SEE UPDATING, UH, OR I'M SORRY, AN UPDATE FROM THE COMMUNICATIONS WORKING GROUP AND COMMISSIONER CALLED IT OWN CAN PROVIDE THOSE UPDATES SURE THING.

UM, OKAY, COOL.

LET'S SEE HERE.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

SO DID WANT TO, UH, ASK EVERYONE TO REVIEW THE EMAIL I OUT ON TUESDAY, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ON MONDAY, BUT THIS WEEK IT WAS DELAYED.

UM, SO I'M GOING TO SEND OUT AN EMAIL EVERY MONDAY, HOPEFULLY.

UM, THAT INCLUDES, UM, IN THIS WEEK, FOR EXAMPLE, ON A LINK TO A COMMUNITY IMPACT ARTICLE OUR FACEBOOK EVENTS, UM, SOME ASSETS THAT MIGHT BE USEFUL FOR LIKE INSTAGRAM POSTS.

AND JUST TO REMINDER, YOU KNOW, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THOSE WITH YOUR NETWORKS AND SHARE THAT ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

UH, THE ONE THING WE DON'T WANT TO DO IS TAG EVERYBODY IN A QUORUM, AND THEN EVERYBODY'S TALKING IN THE COMMENTS AS A FORUM.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO IF YOU WANTED TO SHARE THIS INFORMATION ON YOUR NETWORKS.

UM, THE OTHER THING I WOULD SAY IS, UM, IF YOU HAVE A SUPER PUTTING TOGETHER KIND OF MORE SUBSTANTIAL MEDIA LISTS, UM, AND I WILL BE SENDING THOSE OUT AT THE SAME TIME, I SEND THESE UPDATES TO Y'ALL.

SO IF YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE A CONTACT THAT A NEWS OUTLET, LOCAL, WHATEVER, UH, THAT YOU THINK WOULD BE A GOOD FORUM FOR FOLKS TO FIND OUT ABOUT OUR PUBLIC HEARINGS, ONE, I WOULD SUGGEST YOU FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO THEM IF YOU WANT TO DO ANY INTERVIEWS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

IF YOU YOURSELF DO NOT WANT TO DO AN INTERVIEW, FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO ME OR COMMISSIONER POLYGON, AND WE CAN HANDLE SETTING THAT UP.

UM, AND, UH, IF YOU DO HAVE LIKE A CONTACT YOU WANT US TO ADD TO OUR DISTRIBUTION LISTS AGAIN, SEND THAT FEEL FREE TO SEND THAT OVER TO ME.

UM, ALSO, UM, COMMISSIONER YE, UH, IS GOING TO BE SETTING UP AND HANDLING TWITTER FOR US, WHICH WE HAVE NOT MOVED MOVED ON UNTIL NOW.

SO WE SHOULD HAVE A MORE SUBSTANTIAL UPDATE FOR YOU NEXT WEEK AND PERHAPS INCLUDE, UH, THAT ACCOUNTANT MY NEXT UPDATE ON MONDAY.

UM, LET'S SEE HERE, I SENT THE COMMUNITY IMPACT ARTICLE, FEEL FREE TO SHARE THAT, UM, WE HAVE A COUPLE OF INTERVIEWS THAT ARE GOING TO BE COMING OUT WITH THE MEDIA, UM, KCI DR.

LANDS AND COMMISSIONER .

I DID AN INTERVIEW, UH, PERMISSION OF ON SILAS AND WENT THIS WITH KOP RADIO.

UM, AND, UH, WE'RE WORKING ON TRYING TO UPDATE THE REDISTRICT ATX.ORG WEBSITE VERBIAGE, UM, WHICH, UH, WE'RE GOING TO BE HAVING OUR COMMUNICATIONS WORKING GROUP MEETING ON FRIDAY.

SO WE SHOULD HAVE HOPEFULLY, UM, A LITTLE BIT MORE FINALIZED, UH, VERBIAGE AND TIMELINE BY THE END OF THIS WEEK.

SO THAT'S EVERYTHING THAT I THOUGHT COMMISSIONER NOT.

DID I FORGET ANYTHING? JUST SEEING IF I WAS ON MUTE? I THINK THAT COVERS IT JUST

[00:15:01]

IF ANYONE DOES HAVE QUESTIONS ON THE, UM, OUTLINE THAT COMMISSIONER CALLED IT ON SHARED ABOUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS, PLEASE DO ASK, UM, IF IT'S OKAY WITH SHAREPOINT DOES NOW, JUST BECAUSE, UM, WE DO WANT TO BE IN LINE WITH THE CITY'S, UH, SOCIAL MEDIA PRIORITIES GUIDELINES, SORRY.

FORGOT WHAT IT'S CALLED.

YEAH.

THEY HAVE A SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY THAT I'M ACTUALLY, UM, I HAVE SENT OVER TO OUR GENERAL COUNSEL MR. RICHARDS, AND HE IS, UH, IN COMMUNICATION WITH THE CITY ABOUT THAT.

I KNOW THAT HE RECENTLY REACHED OUT TO MATT.

UM, AND SO ACTUALLY HE HAD ADVISED US FOR JUST FOR THE TIME BEING UNTIL HE, UM, HAS FURTHER COUNSEL TO HOLD OFF FOR A MOMENT.

UM, I THINK THAT MOMENT WILL DEPEND ON HOW QUICKLY HE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE CITY AND GET CLARIFICATION ON WHAT EXACTLY WAS, UH, THEIR CONCERN ABOUT OUR INDIVIDUAL SOCIAL MEDIA USE, BUT ALSO JUST THE EXISTENCE OF SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR THE COMMISSION.

UM, SO I JUST WANTED TO BE VERY UPFRONT ABOUT THAT WITH EVERYBODY.

UM, AND, UM, I WILL UPDATE YOU AS SOON AS I HEAR FROM MR. RICHARDS ABOUT THAT.

I SEE HER, SORRY.

AND THEN COMMISSIONER FARRAKHAN.

YES.

SORRY.

I JUST, HIS HAND KIND OF POPS UP RIGHT ON THE SCREEN.

YEAH.

SORRY.

THANKS FOR THAT.

UM, THE ONLY REASON I PUT MY HAND UP WAS BECAUSE I SAW, UH, COMMISSIONER CALDERON'S EMAIL AND I POSTED ON, I SHARED THAT ON LINKEDIN.

SO DID YOU WANT ME TO TAKE IT DOWN? I JUST DIDN'T KNOW.

UH, SO I WANT TO BE MINDFUL OF THE CITY'S GUIDELINES AND I DIDN'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING OFF.

I SAW THE EMAIL AND I POSTED SO, UM, YOU KNOW, WILLING TO TAKE DIRECTION EITHER WAY.

SO LET US KNOW.

UM, I MEAN, I CANNOT GIVE LEGAL ADVICE OBVIOUSLY, BUT, UM, BUT I THINK THAT FOR THE TIME BEING WHATEVER HAS BEEN POSTED, THAT'S FINE.

WE JUST MAYBE WANT TO HOLD OFF FOR FUTURE POSTS UNTIL WE HEAR FROM OUR GENERAL COUNSEL.

YEAH.

AND I THINK THAT REALLY THE ISSUE WAS A CONCERN ABOUT A WALKING QUORUM ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

BUT, UM, IF WE'RE NOT ALL FRIENDS WITH EACH OTHER ON FACEBOOK OR LINKEDIN, OR WHAT HAVE YOU, UH, I DON'T FORESEE THAT HAPPENING.

UM, BUT IT IS SOMETHING TO BE AWARE OF AND COMMISSIONER FALCON.

YEAH.

I THINK THAT MAYBE WE'RE CONFUSING TWO ISSUES.

SO THE FIRST ISSUE IS, OR WHAT I UNDERSTAND, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE SHOULD BE CLASSIFIED AS AN ISSUE IS THE EXISTENCE OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT.

AND I REVIEWED THOSE DOCUMENTS AND FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED IN THE DOCUMENT THAT YOU SENT ME.

AND IT SAID THAT UNTIL THERE IS A DECISION THAT YOU SHOULD CONTINUE AS IS.

SO I, I GUESS JUST WANT TO OBJECT TO THE CALL TO STOP POSTING BECAUSE I'M NOT REALLY SURE.

I MEAN, THAT'S JUST CERTAINLY NOT IN OUR BEST INTERESTS AND WE DON'T REALLY HAVE OTHER AVENUES TO GET IT OUT.

I MEAN, I SUPPOSE THAT WE COULD CONTINUE TO DISTRIBUTE THEM AMONG THE COMMISSIONERS AND SHARE ON OUR PRIVATE ACCOUNT.

UM, BUT WE DID FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AND WE SENT AN EMAIL TO THE CPIO CIO TO, UM, YOU KNOW, ASK FOR, THERE WERE CERTAIN THINGS IN THERE THAT KIND OF, WE COULD NOT MEET AS A BOARD.

UM, SO, BUT THE PREVAILING, UH, INSTRUCTION WAS, IF YOU KIND OF, DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER TO TALK TO YOUR MARKETING CONSULTANT OF WHICH WE ARE NOT ASSIGNED ONE.

SO MY INTERPRETATION IS TO CONTINUE AS IS UNTIL, UM, YOU KNOW, HEARING ANYTHING ELSE.

SO IF YOU'VE HAD OTHER CONVERSATIONS THAT YOU'VE NOT SHARED WITH, UM, THE COMMUNICATIONS TEAM, THEN WE PROBABLY NEED TO GET, UM, YOU KNOW, ALIGNED ON THAT.

SO THAT'S THE FIRST ISSUE.

THE SECOND ONE IS ABOUT QUORUM ON SOCIAL MEDIA, WHICH IS THAT YOU CAN SHARE MY INTERPRETATION AND MY RULE OF THUMB WOULD BE LIKE, YOU CAN SHARE FROM OUR ACCOUNTS IF THEY EXIST AFTER TODAY, BUT IN THE NEXT FIVE MINUTES.

UM, BUT IF, BUT NOT TO COMMENT ON EACH OTHER'S POSTS JUST TO LIKE IT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SO THAT WOULD THAT GUIDANCE, I KIND OF WANTED TO BOIL IT DOWN TO GUIDANCE THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL.

AND THAT WOULD BE MY GUIDANCE.

SO ABSOLUTELY SHARE IT, BUT, UM, JUST REFRAIN FROM COMMENTING ON EACH OTHER'S POSTS.

SO WITH THAT, MAYBE WE CAN REVISIT THE FIRST NON-ISSUE ISSUE.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER FALCON.

AND I WILL UPDATE Y'ALL WITH WHAT OUR LEGAL COUNSEL

[00:20:01]

HAS TO SAY ABOUT THIS MATTER AS SOON AS I HEAR FROM HIM.

OKAY.

UM, I THINK THAT THAT WAS EVERYTHING FROM THE COMMUNICATIONS WORKING GROUP, UNLESS THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE.

UH, I SEE MR. DOUGAN.

YES.

THANK YOU, SHARON.

UH, YEAH, THANKS FOR THAT.

UM, COMMUNICATING THAT, THAT INFORMATION ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA POSTINGS, UM, AND THE MEANTIME TO GET THAT STUFF OUT, IF YOU JUST WANT TO SEND IT TO ME, UM, I CAN PUSH THAT OUT TO THE CITIES.

UM, THE CITY'S EMAIL, UM, UH, SOCIAL, LET'S SAY CITY SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS, UM, UNTIL WE GET THOSE, UH, STRAIGHTENED OUT AND WE CAN HAVE THIS AS AN AGENDA ITEM ON OUR MEETING NEXT.

UM, AND, UM, FOLKS FROM BOTH THE CITY'S COMMUNICATIONS AND PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER, UH, HAVE OFFERED TO EXPLAIN THE CITY SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY, AS WELL AS THE CITY'S LAW DEPARTMENT TO TALK ABOUT THOSE ISSUES AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

ANYBODY ELSE ON THIS ITEM BEFORE WE MOVE ON? OKAY.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TO DEED UPDATE FROM THE HIRING WORKING GROUP COMMISSIONER.

YOU WILL PROVIDE THE UPDATES.

HI EVERYONE.

I THINK WE HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS ON, UH, HIRING FOR A MAPPING SPECIALIST.

SO, UM, FIRST OF ALL, I REALLY WANT TO SAY A BIG, THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE ON THIS WORKING GROUP, UH, COMMISSIONERS, CALDERON, UH, DEMPSEY, UH, GONZALEZ, UH, POINTERS.

UM, SO, UH, THE COMMISSION HAS POSTED AND REPOSTING THIS POSITION ON INDEED.

AND WE RECEIVED A TOTAL OF 49 APPLICATIONS, WHICH WE ALL REVIEWED, UM, INDIVIDUALLY AND WE SCORED AND WE DID GET HELP FROM MR. KORBEL IN EVALUATING, UM, OUR, OUR CANDIDATES AND OUR PROCESSES, BUT OVER THE COURSE OF THIS DISCUSSION, UM, WHAT WE HAVE CONCLUDED, UH, WAS THAT ACTUALLY MR. KORBEL WOULD BE, UH, OUR BEST MAPPING SPECIALIST, GIVEN HIS EXPERIENCE, HAVING, UM, DRAWN UP DISTRICT MAPS, UH, IN HIS PROPOSALS FOR THE STATE.

AND, UH, AS A TEAM, WE REVIEWED HIS WORK, UH, IN, IN DOING THIS MAP DRAWING AND DO FEEL STRONGLY THAT, THAT HE IS OUR SOLUTION, AND THIS IS ACTUALLY GOING TO SAVE US QUITE A BIT OF MONEY.

AND I THINK THAT MAYBE CHAIR POINT IS, CAN KIND OF ELABORATE ON THAT.

UM, EVERY EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORKING GROUP, DO YOU ALL, IS THERE ANYTHING THAT I COULD BE MISSING, UH, WITH THIS UPDATE? OKAY.

NO, YOU GOT IT.

MISSIONARY.

AND I THINK WHAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO IS THAT WE HAD ALLOCATED 40,000 FOR THE MAPPING SPECIALIST POSITION.

AND, UM, I WILL CLARIFY AND CONFIRM WITH KORBEL AND RICHARDS.

UM, MY, OUR UNDERSTANDING WAS THAT THEY WERE A PACKAGE DEAL AT A RATE OF THREE 50 AN HOUR, AND WE HAD ALLOCATED 50,000 FOR, UH, FOR THE TWO OF THEM.

SO, UH, STAY TUNED AND, UH, THAT WILL BE AN UPDATE IN NEXT WEEK'S MEETING.

OKAY.

ANYTHING ELSE FOR THIS AGENDA ITEM? GREAT.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TO E AN UPDATE FROM THE FINANCE SUBCOMMITTEE, BUT I, MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT MAYBE THERE ISN'T ONE COMMISSIONER MORRIS JUST CONFIRMING THAT THERE ARE NO UPDATES TO THE FINANCE SUBCOMMITTEE AT THIS TIME.

YEAH, NO UPDATES.

YOU KIND OF GLOSSED OVER THE MAPPING SPECIALIST, BUT WE CAN DISCUSS THAT AT THE NEXT MEETING.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TO F AN UPDATE FROM THE FINAL REPORT SUBCOMMITTEE AND COMMISSIONER BLANK CAN PROVIDE THESE UPDATES.

THANK YOU CHAIR.

SO WE MET FOR THE FIRST TIME ON SATURDAY, NOT IN PERSON ONLINE.

I SHOULD ADMIT THAT I WAS LATE BECAUSE I FORGOT AND EVERYBODY WAS VERY GRACIOUS TO ME.

SO I JUST WANT TO, AS I'M GIVING THIS UPDATE, I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD JUST ACKNOWLEDGE THAT, UH, WE'RE EACH PLANNING TO REVIEW THE 2013 REPORT AND DECIDE SORT OF WHAT ASPECTS AND FEATURES OF IT.

WE'D LIKE TO KEEP, BUT WE'D LIKE TO REMOVE OR WHAT WE MIGHT LIKE TO KEEP IT AMEND.

SO THAT'S ONE OF OUR NEXT TASKS GOING FORWARD.

UH, YOU KNOW, THE, THE WORKING GROUP, I'M SURE THE SUBCOMMITTEE HAS A NUMBER OF VERY, YOU KNOW, I THINK, UH, EXPERIENCED WRITERS AT A HIGH LEVEL, AND WE'VE ALL AGREED THAT,

[00:25:01]

YOU KNOW, THAT'S A GOOD THING, EXCEPT THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT, YOU KNOW, THE TONE OF THE REPORT IS WRITTEN FOR A VERY GENERAL AUDIENCE.

WE ALL AGREE THAT THAT'S GOING TO BE ONE OF THE GOALS, UH, IN THE FILE REPORT IS MAKE SURE THAT IT'S, YOU KNOW, EASILY COMPREHENSIBLE TO, YOU KNOW, THE VAST, VAST MAJORITY OF THE CITIZEN HERE IN AUSTIN.

UH, WE THEN DETERMINED, UH, DIFFERENT ROLES FOR THE CREATING THE WORK PRODUCT, UH, AND ASSIGN THOSE ROLES.

WE ALSO DETERMINED A, A BASIC WORKFLOW.

SO FOR EXAMPLE, EACH WEEK, CHRISTINE IS GOING TO BE SENDING, YOU KNOW, THE CLEANUP NOTES FOR EACH OF THE FORUMS. UH, AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO, YOU KNOW, TURN THOSE INTO INTERPRETATIONS AND SORT OF CONTINUE TO BUILD OUT THE SECTIONS AS WE GO ALONG SO THAT WE'RE NOT TRYING TO WRITE THE WHOLE REPORT AT THE END.

SO WE SHOULD HAVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF CONTENT ALREADY TAKEN CARE OF ABOUT THE PROCESS BEFORE WE GET TO THE MAPS.

UM, AND THEN WE'RE BASICALLY SORT OF IN A BIT OF A HOLDING PATTERN NOW UNTIL WE GET MORE INFORMATION FROM, UH, THE PUBLIC FORUMS. AND WE'RE PLANNING TO ME TO GET, I THINK, IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, BUT WE'RE BEING RELATIVELY FLEXIBLE ON THAT, DEPENDING ON THE NEED FOR IT AT THIS POINT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH BLANK.

AND, UM, YOU MENTIONED THAT CHRISTINE WILL PROVIDE US CLEANED UP NOTES FROM THE PUBLIC FORUMS. THAT'S INCLUDING, UH, JUST TO CLARIFY THAT AS INCLUDING ALL OF THE DOCUMENTS, WE'LL RECEIVE THOSE WORKSHEETS FROM THE BREAKOUT SESSIONS, AS WELL AS ANY, UM, VERBAL TESTIMONY THAT WE RECEIVED.

AND, UH, AND I THINK THAT IT WAS VICE CHAIR ZEALOUS, WHO HAD SUGGESTED THAT, UM, THAT THOSE TYPED UP NOTES ARE ALSO PROVIDED TO ALL COMMISSIONERS, THAT WE ALL HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE.

UM, BUT OF COURSE THEY'RE USED STRATEGICALLY WITH FINAL REPORT, A SUB COMMITTEE TO CREATE A REPORT.

SO, UM, I JUST WANTED TO PUT THAT OUT THERE FOR EVERYBODY AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

WE ARE FLYING THROUGH THIS WEEK, QUICK MEETING EVERYBODY.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TWO G.

THESE ARE THE UPDATES FROM THE CITY ON PUBLIC HEARING LOGISTICS AND THE EMPLOYEE CONTRACTS, AND THAT WILL BE TO MATCH YOU AGAIN.

THANK YOU.

SURE.

YEAH.

SO FOR THE PUBLIC FORUMS, I'M FEELING GOOD ABOUT THAT.

THE SECOND ONE WILL BE TOMORROW EVENING.

I'M AT THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY CENTER, 6:00 PM.

UH, I TALKED WITH LISA RODRIGUEZ TODAY AND SHE'S GOT THE SUPPLIES.

I'M GOING TO GO PICK THEM UP AND TAKE THEM OUT THERE, UM, GET THEM SET UP FOR, FOR THAT PUBLIC FORUM.

UM, UH, THE FOLKS THAT CAN DO THE VIDEO AND AUDIO RECORDING, UM, ARE GOOD TO GO AND WE'LL BE THERE AS WELL.

SO I HAVE A RECORDING OF THAT, UM, OF THAT PUBLIC FORUM.

UM, THE ONE QUESTION I HAVE FOR Y'ALL IS, UM, I'VE ACTUALLY GOT THE ASSIGNED STRUCTURE.

WE CAN PUT TO KIND OF DIRECT PEOPLE ONCE I GET TO THE JCC OF WHERE TO GO.

UM, RIGHT NOW IT'S JUST A BLANK.

UM, SO IF YOU WANT, I CAN JUST PRINT OUT ICRC THIS WAY OR FEEL HAVE, UH, A TEMPLATE WITH A GRAPHIC OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SEND IT TO ME.

I CAN PUT THAT OUT EITHER WAY.

UM, UH, UH, WELL WE DO DO THAT SIGN SO WE CAN MAKE SURE PEOPLE GET TO THE RIGHT THE RIGHT SPOT ONCE THEY GET TO THAT LOCATION.

UM, AFTER FOR THE CONTRACT STILL WORKING THROUGH THAT, UM, UH, LAW DEPARTMENT IS WORKING ON THE CONTRACT FOR, UH, LEGAL COUNSEL AND FOR, UM, THE ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGER, UH, CHRISTINE GRANTED DOSE, I'M WORKING WITH THE, MY DEPARTMENTS FINANCE DIVISION ON, UH, ON GETTING HER SET UP AS A VENDOR FOR THE CITY AND, UM, AND SOME FORMS TO FILL OUT FOR THAT, UH, TO GO THAT ROUTE, TO GET HER SET UP.

UM, SO WE MAKE SURE FOLKS AND GET PAID AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

AND I APOLOGIZE FOR THE WAY IT'S, UH, IT'S TAKEN A LOT LONGER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD'VE TAKEN.

UM, DID GET OTHER UPDATES.

THE EMAIL ACCOUNTS THAT UPROAR FROM CHRISTINE IS, UM, IT'S IN THE WORKS THAT SHOULD BE DONE SOON.

UM, AND WE'VE GOTTEN PRELIMINARY APPROVAL, UM, FOR HER TO USE, UH, UH, CITY LAPTOP, AS LONG AS, UM, CITY WORKSPACE AND THE STRAIGHT JONES BUILDING, WHICH IS ON EAST 11TH STREET.

UM, UH, JUST KIND OF HAVE TO CONFIRM A FINAL STEP ON BOTH OF THOSE.

AND THAT'S, YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I HAD.

THANK YOU.

I SEE COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER, WHAT IS THE EXACT LOCATION AT THE JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER WHERE THIS MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE? AND NUMBER TWO, HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOU ANTICIPATE? YEAH, UH, VICE VICE-CHAIR GONZALEZ.

I SEE YOUR HAND JUST BEING RECOGNIZED.

UH, GOOD QUESTION.

UH, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER, AND I ACTUALLY FAILED TO MENTION IT IN MY UPDATE AND WAS GOING TO WAIT TO THE HOUSEKEEPING.

BUT SINCE YOU ASKED THE QUESTION, UH, OUR PUBLIC FORUM TOMORROW IS FROM SIX TO 8:00 PM AT THE DELL JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER AND THE COMMUNITY HALL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, MATT, FOR THE, UH, GETTING THAT SIGN.

UM,

[00:30:01]

I'VE TRIED TO WORK ON, UH, UH, UH, A SHEET, YOU KNOW, I SEE RC PUBLIC FORUM THIS WAY, AND I WANT TO INCLUDE THE ASTRICT REDISTRICTING LOGO.

UM, SO I CAN HAVE THAT SENT OVER TO YOU, OR I CAN JUST TAKE OUT A PRINTOUT AND WE CAN PUT ON THE BOARD.

IS THAT, DOES IT WORK THAT WAY, PRINTING THAT OUT AND THEN JUST STICKING IT ON THE BOARD? YEAH.

IF YOU WANT TO PRINT IT OUT AND I'LL, UH, I'LL GET IT.

I'LL TAPE IT TO THE BOARD.

PERFECT.

SO I WILL BRING THAT TOMORROW.

AND THEN JUST FOR EVERYBODY, I KNOW CHRISTINE GRANADOS HAS OFFERED TO BE THERE, UM, AT THE DELL JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER BY FOUR 30 TOMORROW.

THAT IS ONE OF THE AB STAFF WILL ARRIVE TO SET UP.

I'M GOING TO BE THERE, DO MY BEST TO BE SOUTH TO NORTH TRAFFIC AT FOUR O'CLOCK, UH, TO GET THERE BY 4 45.

UM, BUT THE, THE FORUM DOES, UH, TECHNICALLY START AT SIX.

AND LAST THING TO MENTION I'M A LITTLE OFF TOPIC.

WE DO HAVE AN ADDITIONAL FOUR ON THIS SATURDAY, UM, UH, FROM 11:00 AM TO 1:00 PM.

THAT'S WITHIN DISTRICT SEVEN AND THAT IS AT THE NORTHWEST RECREATION CENTER.

THANK YOU, SIR.

YES, I SEE COMMISSIONER HARDEN AND THEN I JUST WANT TO GIVE A PHYSICAL ADDRESS.

I LOOKED UP THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND I FOUND A LISTEN IT'S 7,300 PORT LANE, 707.

THAT IS CORRECT.

YEAH, JUST A REMINDER THAT WE CANNOT USE THE CHAT FUNCTION IN OUR PUBLIC MEETINGS.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

THE NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS IS TWO H HOUSEKEEPING, A COUPLE OF THINGS.

UH, GREAT JOB, EVERYBODY USING THE RSVP FEATURE ON OUR CITY EMAIL, PLEASE CONTINUE TO DO SO AS THAT INFORMS US.

AND WHETHER WE CAN MEET WITH A QUORUM AND CONDUCT OUR BUSINESS, IF YOU DO NOT REPLY TO THE RSVP OR YOU ARE NOT CONSISTENTLY HONORING YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE ICRC, OUR ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGER, CHRISTINE GRANADOS WILL GIVE YOU A CALL.

AND SECOND, PLEASE SHOW UP EARLY TO THESE PUBLIC FORUMS. I WOULD SAY AT LEAST 10 TO 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF EACH FORUM SO THAT WE CAN BEGIN ON TIME.

PLEASE DO NOT BE WALKING IN RIGHT AT SIX O'CLOCK.

UM, AND THIRD, AFTER RECEIVING THIS WARNING ABOUT THE CITY FOR OUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR INDIVIDUAL USE, AGAIN, I JUST WANTED TO REITERATE, SINCE I HAD THIS IN MY NOTES, WE ARE WAITING ON MR. RICHARDS TO BE ADVISED AND THEN FORTH.

UM, MATT, PARDON? IF, IF THIS WAS SOMETHING YOU HAD GONE OVER, I KNOW YOU MENTIONED SETTING UP AN EMAIL FOR CHRISTINE, BUT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT WHETHER THE EMAIL ADDRESS ICRC DOT COMMISSIONERS AT AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV IS UP AND WORKING YET? THAT'S THE ONE THAT SENDS THE FORWARDS WHATEVER MESSAGE TO ALL 14 OF US AT THE SAME TIME.

YEAH.

SO IT'S, UM, IT'S, IT'S PARTLY WORKING WHEN FOLKS SEND AN EMAIL TO IT.

IT DOES GET RECEIVED.

I GET IT.

AND THEN I JUST HAVE TO MANUALLY SEND IT ON TO, TO THE 14 MEMBERS OF THE ICRC COMMISSION.

UM, UH, ALRIGHTY.

FOLKS ARE STILL WORKING THROUGH THAT TO SEE WHY THE AUTOMATIC FORWARDING AND THE AUTOMATIC REDIRECT FUNCTION IS NOT, IS NOT WORKING JUST YET.

UM, RIGHT NOW SEEMS LIKE IT'S SOME SORT OF AUTHORIZATION OR PERMISSIONS ISSUE THAT WE'RE, THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO WORK THROUGH, BUT THE ICRC DOT COMMISSIONERS THAT AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV EMAIL ADDRESS IS WORKING, UM, THOSE WHO HAVE COME THROUGH.

OKAY.

AND, UH, SO BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW, I DON'T THINK THAT WE'VE GOTTEN ANYTHING FROM IT.

I'M ASSUMING THAT YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY COMMUNICATION FROM THE PUBLIC THROUGH THAT EMAIL ADDRESS YET.

UH, SAY I'VE RECEIVED TWO, UM, UH, YOU'RE CORRECT.

I'VE RECEIVED TO, UM, YOU KNOW, SAY THAT WHEN I WENT TO CINEMA AND THEY GOT, THEY GOT KICKED BACK THROUGH THAT AUTHORIZATION, THAT AUTHORIZATION ISSUE.

UM, I THINK ONE OF THE LAST ONE I SENT, I THINK I TOOK CHRISTINE AND GRANTED DOSE, BUT I NEED TO, I NEED TO CONFIRM THAT WITH HER.

OKAY.

UM, IF THERE WERE EMAILS THAT WENT TO THAT ADDRESS, IT WOULD BE GREAT IF THEY COULD BE FORWARDED TO US.

UM, EVEN IF THEY'RE OLDER BECAUSE THEY WERE ADDRESSED TO US.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

AND THE FINAL ORDER OF BUSINESS, UNLESS ACTUALLY, LET ME STEP BACK.

UM, I KNOW VICE-CHAIR GONZALES, YOU HAD SAID THAT YOU HAD A NOTE UNDER HOUSEKEEPING, IT WAS ADDRESSED.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE FROM YOU OR ANYONE ELSE HERE IN THIS ITEM BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO THE FINAL ORDER OF BUSINESS, I START GONZALEZ JUST, JUST SINCE WE WON'T MEET BEFORE THEN, I'VE ALREADY MENTIONED THE DISTRICT 10 FORUM, THE DISTRICT SEVEN FORUM ON SATURDAY.

IT MIGHT AS WELL ALSO MENTIONED, AND THIS WILL BE SENT TO YOU IN THE LIST AFTER THIS, THE DISTRICT EIGHT FORUM WILL BE ON TUESDAY, JULY 27TH, FROM SIX TO 8:00 PM AT THE LBJ

[00:35:01]

WILDFLOWER CENTER, UM, IN THEIR AUDITORIUM.

UM, WE'VE PASSED OUT A MAP TO THE COMMUNICATIONS GROUP TO ADD TO OUR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS THAT SHOWS THEM THE EASIEST WAY FROM THE ENTRANCE TO THE AUDITORIUM.

AND MY, MY NEXT STEP IS TO SEND OUT ANOTHER MAP TO THE COMMISSIONERS HERE.

UH, THERE, THEY DID OFFER A SPECIFIC PARKING FOR US, WHICH IS A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO THE CENTER AND IT EASIER TO GET FROM, UH, PARKING TO THE AUDITORIUM.

SO JUST BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THAT EMAIL AS WELL.

UM, PRIME PARKING.

SO CAN'T BEAT THAT OUT THERE.

THAT'S IT? THAT'S IT.

SHAREPOINT DOES.

THANK YOU.

AND I SEE THAT DR.

I JUST DIDN'T HAVE MY VIDEO.

GOTCHA.

WELL, IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU.

AND I SEE COMMISSIONER PELLET ON HIS HAND.

YEAH.

UM, I JUST WANTED TO CHECK IN ALSO ABOUT, SINCE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CITY EMAILS, THERE'S AN EMAIL ON THE REDISTRICTING WEBSITE, REDISTRICT ATX AT AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV.

DID THAT GO SOMEWHERE? UM, CAN WE, IS THAT THE SAME ONE? I'M JUST, I'M SORRY.

YEAH.

GOOD, GOOD QUESTION.

THAT'S A, THAT'S A DIFFERENT EMAIL ACCOUNT.

UM, THE EMAILS THAT ARE SENT TO THAT GO TO THE, UM, UH, THE OFFICE OF THE AUDITOR AND THEN THEY SEND THOSE TO ME.

SO THOSE, THOSE EMAILS ALSO GET THROUGH AS WELL.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

CAN I ASK FOR A CLARIFICATION? YES.

GO AHEAD.

BOTH THE EMAIL ADDRESSES THAT ARE OUT THERE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO GO TO ALL THE COMMISSIONERS THAT ARE GOING TO MATT AND CAN YOU DO IT SLOWLY? SURE.

AND I'LL, UM, I CAN EMAIL THEM TO YOU AS WELL.

UH, BUT THE FIRST ONE IS I SAY RC DOT COMMISSIONERS, UH, AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV.

OKAY.

AND THE OTHER ONE, THE OTHER ONE IS REDISTRICT.

ATX R E D I S T R I C T.

ATX AT AUSTIN, TEXAS.GOV.

OH, GOOD.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

ANYTHING ELSE BEFORE WE GO TO A FUTURE AGENDA, COMMISSIONER SCHNEIDER, UM, THIS IS A MUNDANE QUESTION.

QUESTION, CHRISTINA, DO COMMISSIONERS HAVE NAME BADGES WHEN THEY GO TO THESE PUBLIC MEETINGS? ARE WE IDENTIFIABLE FOR THE TIME BEING NO, BUT WHEN YOU HAVE NAME TAGS THAT WE PUT OUT FOR THE PUBLIC AND LAST TIME, THAT IS WHAT WE USE THE NAME CHECK.

THAT'S FINE.

OKAY.

THE FINAL ORDER OF BUSINESS IS FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS. AND, UH, AND SO IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE WERE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT CAME UP IN OUR DISCUSSION TODAY.

UH, THE FINANCE SUBCOMMITTEE WILL HAVE AN UPDATE AND POSSIBLE ACTION ON THE BUDGET.

UM, THE COMMUNICATIONS WORKING GROUP UPDATE AND POSSIBLE ACTION ON SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS.

UM, ALSO I WANT TO ADD CHANGE TO THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE PUBLIC FORUM WORKING GROUP.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE FROM ANYONE TO ADD TO FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS? DO WE HAVE A REGULAR MEETING SCHEDULED DATE? ARE YOU REFERRING TO THE MEETINGS LIKE THIS ONE TONIGHT? IT'S ALWAYS AT WEDNESDAYS AT 6:00 PM.

THAT'S A DONE DEAL.

WE KNOW THAT.

YES.

YES.

IT HAS BEEN FOR SOME TIME.

WELL, SOMETIMES DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING TO ME SINCE THIS IS MY FIRST ONE.

UM, SO, UM, ARE WE USING ZOOM? IT DEPENDS.

UH, I THINK EVERY WEEK WE ARE TRYING TO SECURE A LOCATION, WHETHER THAT IS IN PERSON OR THROUGH WEBEX, BUT THE CITY, BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING THAT THE COMMISSION DECIDED TO DO SEPARATELY FROM THE CITY, BECAUSE WE'RE NOT ABLE TO GET A REGULAR LOCATION.

UM, SO WE'VE USED ZOOM FOR THE LAST TWO WEEKS OR THIS WEEK AND LAST WEEK I LOVE ZOOM.

SO I, I MEAN, I WAS VERY PLEASED TO SEE THIS.

I

[00:40:01]

SEE COMMISSIONER GONZALES AS WELL.

UM, JUST A NOTE FROM MATT OR A SUGGESTION FROM MATT.

SO MATT, CLAIRE, PLEASE CLARIFY.

BUT HE MAY BE OFFERED, UM, CITY GUESTS TO EXPLAIN THE SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY.

AND JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF THAT WAS, UH, AN ITEM THAT WE WANTED TO PUT ON FOR THE NEXT AGENDA.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND I SEE COMMISSIONER ONE'S HAND UP CHAIR.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

SORRY.

I WAS JUST ADDING THAT TO MY NOTES.

UH, COMMISSIONER PHONE, I, SORRY TO BE A BROKEN RECORD ABOUT THIS, BUT THE POLICY IS OUTLINED, SO I DON'T REALLY FEEL THAT WE NEED TO HAVE IT ALL WE REALLY NEED IS THE DECISION ON THAT? YES.

SO THAT WILL BE A COMMUNICATIONS WORKING GROUP UPDATE.

YEAH.

SO LIKE LET EVERYBODY KNOW WHEN THAT HAS GONE THROUGH.

OKAY.

I JUST UNDERSTOOD IT, THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE A PRESENTATION AND I WAS, I GUESS, SORRY, I MISUNDERSTOOD YOU.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT FROM THE CITY HAVING A CITY FIRST.

OKAY.

UM, MATT, MAYBE YOU CAN CLARIFY WHAT EXACTLY WOULD, YOU KNOW, WOULD HAPPEN WHEN WE BRING IN THESE GUESTS.

YEAH.

SO I THINK IT WOULD BE KIND OF A TWO-PART, UM, TWO PART INFORMATION AND KIND OF GOING OVER THE, SO THE CITY SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY, UM, JUST OKAYING THE, UM, IN OUR COMMUNICATIONS OF PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICE AS, UM, HAS A GREAT TALK WITH YOU ALL ABOUT, AND THEN ALSO FROM CITY'S LAW DEPARTMENT TO EXPLAIN THAT THE LEGAL, IT WAS JUST AROUND THAT NOW.

UM, IF THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR Y'ALL.

I SEE COMMISSIONER LEE AND QUESTION AS WELL.

UM, I JUST HAVE A QUESTION IN REGARDS TO HAPPY HOURS SLASH TEAM BUILDING.

DOES THAT NEED TO BE ON AN AGENDA OR A, IF I WERE TO START ORGANIZING THE NEXT ONE, UH, WHAT, HOW, HOW SHOULD I PROCEED? THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

UM, I DON'T THINK IT NECESSARILY NEEDS TO BE AN AGENDA ITEM, BUT MATT, MAYBE YOU CAN CLARIFY THAT.

YEAH.

SO MY UNDERSTAND IS HOW THAT WOULD WORK IS, UM, IF THERE IS GOING TO BE A QUORUM OF COMMISSIONERS AT AN EVENT, AND WE JUST NEED TO POST THAT AS A, I BELIEVE IT'S CALLED A SPECIAL EVENT.

SO THERE'S JUST A POSTING OF THE SPECIAL EVENT KIND OF GIVES THE DATE, THE TIME AND LOCATION.

AND THEN JUST THE LINE SAYING SOMETHING LIKE, UM, A QUORUM OF ICRC COMMISSIONERS MAY BE PRESENT AND NO ACTION WILL BE TAKEN.

UM, AND I ACTUALLY HAD A HOUSEKEEPING, UM, UH, QUESTION.

I DON'T KNOW IF THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN ADDRESSED AND I JUST MISSED IT SOMEHOW, BUT YOU KNOW HOW WE WERE ALL SUPPOSED TO TAKE THOSE TRAINING, UH, SESSIONS, UM, THAT HAD TO DO WITH THE OPEN MEETINGS ACT.

AND NOW, NOW I'M TOTALLY, I'M SORRY, BLANKING ON THAT, RIGHT? YEAH.

AND THE PUBLIC RECORDS THAT WAS THROUGH THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S WEBSITE.

SO WE ALL HAVE THESE CERTIFICATES WHERE WE SUPPOSED TO EMAIL THEM TO CHRISTINE OR IS WHAT IS, HOW ARE WE TRACKING THEM ALL.

MAYBE YOU CAN ADVISE ON THAT.

YEAH.

UM, LET'S SEE A QUESTION.

I DIDN'T KNOW.

Y'ALL GOT CERTIFICATES WHEN YOU, WHEN YOU COMPLETED THEM.

UM, I'LL CHECK ON THAT TO SEE IF WE NEED TO RETAIN THOSE, THOSE CERTIFICATES FOR RECORDS.

AND I DO BELIEVE THAT THEY'RE AUTOMATICALLY, UM, REGISTERED WITH THE STATE, SO THAT MIGHT BE ALL THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, IT WOULDN'T HURT TO, TO GET CLARIFICATION IF THE CITY NEEDS THAT AS WELL FOR THEIR RECORDS.

UM, I SEE QUESTIONNAIRE AND MEET YOURSELF, PLEASE.

THANK YOU.

YEAH, I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY, SORRY AGAIN, I'M NOT, IT'S ALL AUTOMATICALLY REGISTERED TO THE ONLINE LMS SYSTEM AND IT AUTOMATICALLY SAYS THAT IF YOU'VE TAKEN THE COURSE AND COMPLETED IT, IT SENDS A RECORD BACK TO THE CITY IN NONCOMPLIANCE.

DON'T EMAIL YOU AND TELL YOU TO TAKE IT.

IT'S FAIRLY AUTOMATED.

I DON'T THINK THERE'S AN ACTION ON OUR END.

JUST TAKE THE COURSE AND FINISH IT.

THANK YOU.

AND ON THAT NOTE, IF YOU HAVEN'T TAKEN THE COURSE, UM, I THINK THAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE COMPLETED WITHIN 90 DAYS OF SWEARING YOUR OATH.

SO, UM, IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE IT, PLEASE GET THAT DONE.

UM, WE DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANY, ANY LEGAL ISSUES ARE AND, UM, OKAY.

I THINK SOMEONE ELSE HAD A HAND UP EARLIER.

DID I MISS THAT? I SEE COMMISSIONER CONSOLE AS WELL.

OKAY.

KRISHA, TELL US CLARIFICATION ON THE POSSIBLE HAPPY HOUR OR FUNCTION, MATT, IF WE POST THIS AS A SPECIAL EVENT, DOES THAT MEAN PEOPLE? UM, UH, GUESTS FROM THE PUBLIC COULD POTENTIALLY ATTEND SINCE IT HAS BEEN POSTED AS A SPECIAL EVENT.

[00:45:01]

I SEE SOME HEADS SHAKING, SO THANK YOU.

UH, SO IT SEEMS LIKE A YES.

YEAH, THAT'D BE YES.

SORRY.

I MISSPOKE.

I BELIEVE IT'S ACTUALLY COLLECT COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT.

UM, JUST LETTING FOLKS KNOW, UM, WHAT'S GOING ON.

SO YEAH, SO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC COULD ATTEND, UM, UH, THEY KEEP THEM ON, I THINK THERE'S THAT LINE IN THE CHARTER THAT YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT REGISTER BUSINESS.

UM, UH, THAT'S CORRECT.

YES.

AWESOME.

THANKS FOR THE HEAD.

NODS EVERYBODY.

AND THEN COMMISSIONER HARDEN.

YEAH.

SO WITH AUSTIN, GOING BACK TO, I FORGET, I'M SORRY WE'RE WORKING ON SOMETHING WITH PHASES, BUT PHASE FOUR OR LEVEL FOUR, UM, WOULD ANY LEVEL THAT THE CITY GOES TO IMPACT OUR ABILITY TO HOLD A PUBLIC FORUM? THAT'S A BIG QUESTION.

I THINK IT MIGHT DEPEND ON THE VENUE.

UM, AND THAT'S ANOTHER THING I ACTUALLY WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO MR. RICHARDS ABOUT.

UM, BUT, BUT YEAH, THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION.

IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S BEEN ON MY MIND AS WELL.

YES.

ALONG THAT SAME TOPIC LINE.

THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO INQUIRE ABOUT.

UH, ANY STRATEGIES FOR, UH, PUBLIC SAFETY AND COMMISSIONERS SAFETY, UH, IN THESE PUBLIC FORUMS, GIVEN THE, UH, WE ARE NOW IN CITY OF BOSTON MOVING TO OUR KRAVITZ TOWNIE TO STAGE FOUR, UH, PROTOCOL, WHICH IS THE SECOND HIGHEST LEVEL.

AND SO, UH, AS WE ARE SET UP FOR LIKE THE FORUM TOMORROW, ARE WE SETTING IT UP WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING IN MIND AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE? UM, YES.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, I KNOW THAT WE CANNOT MANDATE ANYTHING WE CAN ONLY ENCOURAGE.

AND SO IT'S PART OF OUR SLIDE DECK IN THE PRESENTATION.

AT THE VERY BEGINNING, WE WILL EXPLAIN TO THE PUBLIC, YOU KNOW, PLEASE MASK UP.

I ALSO AM GOING TO REITERATE TO ALL OF US COMMISSIONERS THAT WE, UM, MODEL, YOU KNOW, BY EXAMPLE AND ANYONE WHO DOES COME TOMORROW, YOU KNOW, COME MASK AND STAY MASK, UM, WHENEVER POSSIBLE FORCE.

SO, UM, AND I SEE JUST WANTED TO PROVIDE SOME CLARITY FOR COMMISSIONER HART IN THERE.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UH, WE WILL, WE WILL STATE THAT AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH FORM, SIR.

UH, JUST, AND BE A MODEL OF IT.

UH, THE SUPPLIES THAT MATT HAS NOTED THAT THEY WERE GOING TO THE JCC TOMORROW DO INCLUDE MASKS AND HAND SANITIZER.

UM, AND THE SPACE ITSELF WILL BE SET UP FOR 40 TO 50 FOLKS WITH THE, WITH THE NOTE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE, THOSE CHAIRS.

UM, SO THE ROOM WILL ALSO BE SOCIAL DISTANCE, UM, ADHERENT, UH, SO GREAT QUESTIONS.

UH, I BELIEVE STAGE FOUR MEANS, YOU KNOW, IF WE DO GO INTO STAGE FOUR, I THINK WE'RE STILL IN STAGE THREE.

UM, BUT I BELIEVE STAGE FOUR REQUIRES OR ASKS YOU TO WEAR A MASK INDOORS AND OUTDOORS.

SO JUST AGAIN, I WILL WEAR MY MASK INSIDE.

UH, IT MIGHT MUFFLE MY SPEECH A LITTLE BIT.

UM, BUT THAT'S PERSONALLY WHAT I WILL DO TOMORROW.

APPRECIATE THE QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONER AND COMMISSIONER HARDEN.

ABSOLUTELY.

ANYTHING ELSE FOR A FUTURE AGENDA ITEM.

OKAY.

UM, SO IF THERE'S NO FURTHER BUSINESS, THE MEETING IS ADJOURNED.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.
