REPORT NARRATIVE:

The City Council has an adopted policy, which sets forth the criteria for the selection of Mayor Pro Tempore annually for a one-year term.  The adopted policy is intended to provide every Council Member with the opportunity to serve as Mayor Pro Tempore.  Nomination for the Mayor Pro Tempore seat is based on: (1) the length of time that an individual has served on the City Council, and (2) whether or not the nominee has previously had the opportunity to serve as Mayor Pro Tempore.  The Mayor or any member of the City Council may nominate a member to serve as Mayor Pro Tempore. A copy of the Council Policy CP-99-01 is attached and the recent Mayor Pro Tem history is as follows:

Additionally, in reviewing Council Policy CP-99-01, staff discovered that there were references to the Mayor Pro Tempore also serving as the Vice-Chair to the Redevelopment Agency.  With the dissolution of the Redevelopment Agency, this reference is no longer needed.  Staff recommends that Council amend Council Policy CP-99-01 to delete the references to the Redevelopment Agency.  The current, redlined, and proposed versions of the Policy are attached for reference.
