The city posts all of its City Council agendas online, but staff members still must hand-deliver notices of special meetings to each council member’s doorstep. “It’s such a poor use of resources and time,” said City Council member Frost Yarnell. “People have to drive all over the city to deliver these.” So the city is asking voters in November to change the charter to allow notices to be sent by e-mail to council members. That ballot initiative, 2B, is one of three that propose minor changes to the charter.
