Brockett addressing the final vote to give $2.7M on spending to remove homeless camps, including $1.5M for more cops.

He, Friend and Swetlik voted last time as well.
Brockett requested a public hearing on this adjustment to the base budget, but it was never scheduled.

These don't usually have public hearings, but they don't usually represent new spending on new policies, as Brockett pointed out.
Friend also votes no, as does Swelik.

Nagle votes yes and says she "hopes it shows the community that they are serious" about this issue.
Everyone else voted yes except for Brockett, Friend and Swetlik, just as the last two times.

We're talking scheduling now. Joseph pointed out that the July 13 special meeting is the same day as the MLB All-Star game, so maybe they want to reschedule...?
Weaver said there is no precedent for rescheduling due to sporting events.
Apparently this was a Nagle suggestion. "Normally I would not have brought this up," she says, "but this is a pretty big deal for our state, especially given the reasons the game was moved to Colorado ... due to Georgia's restrictive voting laws."

Next public hearing will be a little longer, but not by much.

A city ordinance passed in 1982 bans lightweight vehicles at the airport. It was in response to safety concerns of them interacting with more powerful aircraft.
"They were not considered to be aircraft back in 1982," says Erika Vandenbrande, the city's transportation head.
But now they are. The FAA has let Boulder know it can’t ban lightweight vehicles (it got a complaint).

Staff recommending repeal of that ordinance.

OK, moving on to our two public hearings. The first doesn't even have a staff presentation.

It's a vote to allow marijuana retailers to sell hemp products.
They are currently only allowed to sell marijuana and bottled water.
A state law changed in July 2020, but Boulder's pot biz still can't sell hemp.

The Cannabis Licensing Advisory Board proposed and recommended changing that. All comments at their public hearing were in favor.

Settler's Park renaming application is up now. Reminder: That will be called The Peoples' Crossing, sometime before Indigenous Peoples Day this year (Oct. 11).

The Peoples' Crossing is an OSMP area by Canyon Drive, near the Red Rocks trails. In fact, it used to be known as Red Rocks until about the 1990s.

Waiting on municipal judge Linda Cooke, who will be giving a quarterly update. She's having technical difficulties. Here's the presentation in the meantime.…
I said this was "nice" data. What I meant was not that the data itself was good, but having it is.
It shows continued racial disparities in traffic stops. Black residents are more likely to receive citations relative to their share of the population.

Tonight's meeting is kinda light. We've got an update from the municipal court which looks fascinating. Nice race/ethnicity data.
Then the application to rename Settler's Park, which you can read about here.…
Our two public hearings are pretty quick and dirty.
Allowing marijuana retailers to sell hemp products, and ending a ban on lightweight vehicles at the airport.
