This week, city council will meet on Monday with a continuation scheduled for Tuesday morning, and a special city council meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

Key agenda items include the following:

Here are some of the other new agenda items:

  • Council will consider five options for dealing with amendments to the budget. Administration recommends against the "first moved, first voted" and randomized approaches, and also recommends that some sections of the council procedures bylaw be waived to help "smooth the pace of deliberations."
  • The 2021 annual report for the Edmonton Police Service will be presented at council. It was submitted to the Edmonton Police Commission in March.

The following items from committee will be considered:

  • An amendment to Traffic Bylaw 5590, which would increase the fine for violating parking bans from $100 to $250, should be given three readings, community and public services committee recommended. Administration says the change brings the fine "into alignment with most bylaw infractions."
  • A motion from Coun. Joanne Wright calling for administration to engage with stakeholders to evaluate mitigation measures by the shisha industry was requisitioned without a recommendation.

Meetings are streamed live on YouTube on the Chamber channel and River Valley Room channel.
