City Attorney update: 12 applications received.
HR recommending 6 of those advance. Council will receive the candidate materials, with ID'ing info redacted.
Reminder: Tom Carr retiring at the end of June.
Council is going to independently rank those, as they did with the city manager recently.

The top candidates will be interviewed by council members the week of May 17.
Yates and Friend (they're on the subcommittee) will make their recommendations on finalists as early as May 25, possibly early June.
Swetlik: Is 12 a normal amount of applicants for a position in a city like this?
Yates: "Our recruiter was a little disappointed in the numbers."
The campaign started March 22... the day of the King Soopers shooting.

"It was a more quiet campaign, and it may have resulted" in a lower number than we would have expected, Yates says.
But there are quality candidates in this group, Yates says.

As a comparison, the city manager search drew 60-some candidates.

It' a lovely Tuesday evening for a #Boulder city council meeting.

We've had a bit of a change-up in the agenda: No homelessness stuff tonight. It's been moved to next week, a special meeting (which means no open comment).
We DO have open comment tonight, tho, so I would expect to hear from folks about homelessness.
There's one main agenda item tonight: Marpa House. There will be a public hearing and council vote on the reuse of this space from communal living to 16, 3-bedroom units. Neighbors are opposed.

It sounds like there's a coordinated effort to disrupt Bob Yates' talk at the Highland City Club. I can hear sirens, clanking and shouting in the background. And perhaps the slamming of doors.
I'd get down there, but I have support group after. And I have a feeling I'm going to need it.
Well, shit, I'm gonna have to go down there.

Oh, well now she's addressing it.
Making an equity argument about where this campground will go. Prob not where there are million-dollar homes, but where the working-class ppl live which will "lower that area further."
That's a Young talking point that Joseph was persuaded by, she says.

Alright, the big one: Encampments. Or, as the city is calling it, "Update on Approaches to Safe Space Management of Public Areas and Sanctioned Camping"…
I see they've dispensed with "maintaining safe and welcoming open spaces," as it was being referred to previously.

Of course, this is an evolution of a conversation we've had at council before.
As Kurt Firnhaber is reminding us now.
