Title

Consider Summary Publication of Ordinance No. 1025 Amending Chapter Fourteen of the Northfield City Charter.

 

Body

Action Requested:                     

The Northfield City Council is asked to approve summary publication of Ordinance No. 1025 Amending Chapter Fourteen, Section 14.2 of the Northfield City Charter. 

 

Summary Report:

The Northfield City Council has completed the first and second readings of Ordinance No. 1025.  

Ordinance No. 1025 amends Section 14.2 - Hospital Board of the City Charter by increasing the number of hospital board members who may be selected from outside city limits and allowing appointment of one hospital employee to the hospital board. 

 

Alternative Options:

The City Council could direct staff to publish the entire ordinance.

 

Financial Impacts:                     

The cost to publish the entire ordinance would be approximately four times more than the cost to publish the summary.

 

Tentative Timelines:                     

If approved, the summary is proposed to be published on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.  The ordinance would then be effective 90 days after publication, which is October 26, 2021.
