Speak Out on West Linn City Council
Brenda Perry’s Facebook Post:
Dear City Manager Gabrielatos, Mayor Axelrod and fellow City Councilors,
The City Council has several items of business to complete on January 4, 2021.
The following order of business is appropriate for the January 4, 2021 City Council Meetings and Councilor Relyea and I ask that the Agenda be revised accordingly:
5:00 PM – Executive Session 192.660 (2) (i) and (f) (Complete City Attorney’s evaluation and receive Dee Rubanoff’s advice per- redacted Sept.2020 Memo)
6:00 PM Special Meeting
Call to order and Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag (Please display Flag)
Approval of agenda
Consent agenda- 2020 Meeting notes. Release redacted Sept 2020 City Attorney memo previously approved to be posted on City website under Fesser case. (Routine matter)
Council votes to acknowledge completion of City Attorney’s annual evaluation. (According to Council Rules Section I (1) “The Council shall perform an annual evaluation on the Attorney under the terms of the City Attorney’s contract.” Councilors give feedback individually, but must as a whole, provide a written evaluation in order to provide clear Council direction to the City Attorney, the same as it does for the City Manager). Thus, all individual performance evaluations will be forwarded to the HR Director and compiled for a composite rating.
Councilor Walters resigns as a City Councilor – The City Charter under Section 30 provides language that indicates the Council must declare a vacancy in cases when the incumbent resigns. Thus, Councilor Walters must resign her current position so that Council can announce the vacancy.
The remaining Council declares a vacancy and votes to fill the position by appointment until a “successor” is elected, per Charter Section 31.
City Manager/City Attorney report
Elect President of the Council. (Charter Section 18 requires electing a President of the Council at the first meeting of the year)
