Another Tuesday, another #Boulder city council meeting.

Tonight: A second COVID briefing (not sure why, since we had one last week)
Public hearing on forming a library district
Final votes on Marpa House and appropriating $2.7M in new spending to remove encampments.
Those last two are really formalities, since council already voted on the substance of them. Both items are on the consent agenda, which mean they normally wouldn't even be discussed, but a few minutes have been set aside for each.
30 min for Marpa and 10-15 (can't remember) for the budget item. Councilman Aaron Brockett asked for a public hearing on the appropriation of $$; I guess this was the compromise.
List of speakers have not been uploaded for open comment or the library district public hearing, so idk what's going on.

Quick update on the city attorney search. Tom Carr retiring in June; council will (likely) appoint Sandra Llanes as interim city attorney before the new one starts in July.
Those semi-finalists have been ID'd and are being interviewed by council (in pairs of 2) now. We should know the recommendation by next week or early June.
Llanes is a current deputy city attorney.

New topic, new thread (though we're still on the consent agenda): Final conditions for approval of the Marpa House reuse.

Presentation describing those conditions:…
30 min have been set aside for this (10 were set aside for the budget item, but it took 25, so 30 min prob = 45 min - 1 hr)
But I've been wrong before.

Moving on to the consent agenda, where the adjustment to base budget item is. Normally pretty routine, but as I said, this time it includes $2.7M for encampment removal.…
Brockett on why he wanted a public hearing: There are significant new expenditures on items of community interest.
"There have been some strong opinions from the community on a lot of different sides," Brockett says. "That was my primary reason for requesting that be a public hearing."

I don't have a list of open comment speakers, so idk who we've got or why. I may tweet; I may not. I'll keep you in suspense.
Patrick Murphy complaining about the new system for displaying emails to/from city council (which are public record). I agree; I didn't think it possible for the old one to get worse, but somehow, they did it.
So far, mostly Marpa House neighbors. As I said (earlier tonight and on KGNU yesterday) tonight's vote is likely a formality. Council just giving final OK to stuff they already discussed / voted on.

Alright, our second monthly COVID briefing. Again, not sure why, since we just had one. Maybe they'll say.

Presentation here:…
Maybe bc we moved into Level Clear on Sunday, and ended our local mask mandate...?
