There are three agenda items on next Tuesday’s Santa Rosa City Council Agenda which are of interest to the Santa Rosa Together (SRT) Steering Committee. The 5pm Public Hearing on FISCAL YEAR 2015-16 BUDGET PRIORITIES AND CITY COUNCIL GOALS (14.1) is a very important opportunity for all residents interested in influencing the way that the City spends our money. The SRT Steering Committee will be encouraging the Council to allocate funds for key elements to implement the recent recommendations of the Open Government Task Force.
Depending on the pace of the Council Meeting, either earlier or later, the Council will hear reports on, and consider accepting, the Civic Engagement Strategy Plan for the Roseland Annexation and Specific Area Plan (13.2), as well as the Public Review Draft of the Costs and Revenues of Roseland Annexation (13.3). The Steering Committee will be encouraging the Council to provide more funds for, and insure a more representative and supported Steering Committee to supervise, the civic engagement process for the Roseland Annexation Plan.
