Council Vote on Advisory Board

The proposed resolution establishing a Joint City-County JEDI Advisory Board was heard before the Committee of the Whole on January 11, where it received 9 votes in favor, 3 against. Because it was not a unanimous vote, the January 23 Council Meeting will hear the motion again, welcome public comment, and make a final vote.

A community working group has labored for over a year and a half to accomplish creation of this board, a measure supported in the initial JEDI Resolution passed in August 2021. A vote passing this resolution honors the work of these community members, and establishes a body that will provide invaluable insight for both City and County government leaders.

Please attend the meeting either in-person or virtually to show your support for a JEDI Advisory Board! Note that while the agenda shows this issue being addressed toward the end, if there are no objections from council, it will be moved earlier to after the reading of the Black History Month proclamation.
