Crystal to Review City Code
By Andrew Richter
Well this is nice to see! Our new council in Crystal is appointing a task force to review the city code
The Crystal City Code contains regulations for municipal operations and administration, building, planning and land use regulations, public health, public utilities and streets, public safety as well as business and trade regulations and licensing such as liquor licenses.
The Crystal City Council has determined that a task force should take the leading role in reviewing the provisions of the City Code and recommend changes to the City Council.
The Task Force will review all sections of the City Code except Section 425, Property Maintenance, which will be reviewed by the City Council. The purpose of the Task Force is to review the City Code to recommend changes which streamline, update and remove unnecessary or dated provisions. The Task Force will present recommendations to the City Council and the City Council will consider and determine final changes to the City Code.
The Crystal City Council has authorized recruitment of a 10 member task force consisting of:
- 7 Crystal residents
- 3 representatives from the Crystal business community
The Task Force is anticipated to meet monthly, one week night a month (date and time to be determined by the Task Force) to review the City Code. Members of the Task Force may be asked to periodically present recommendations to the City Council at additional work session meetings.
Responsibilities of Task Force members:
- Attend meetings
- Read meeting materials prior to meetings
- Participate in Task Force discussions
- Listen to and respect the viewpoints of others
- Serve as a conduit of information to and from the greater community
Isn’t this great! A city council that actually cares about cutting the city code, decreasing regulation. and restoring our personal liberty?
Thank you to Mayor Jim Adams and the council for this! This would never have happened under the old council who were uninterested in this subject, despite giving it lip service during election time. We’ve been calling for code review here at Community Solutions for years and it’s great to see it happening!
