Here are some highlights:
Will council members raise questions about the so-called Press-Ganey survey, which was the subject of an anonymous letter questioning McEvoy’s ability to lead Memorial as an independent nonprofit?
The City Committee, a group of business leaders who have been analyzing city operations for the past year and recommending ideas that mirror the private sector, will present some of its findings.
The group, essentially an unpaid consultant to the city, has been meeting with council members and others behind closed doors to discuss its findings, so today’s presentation is believed to be the first before the general public.
Will city staff challenge The City Committee’s findings?
The council will get a lesson in how it can – and can’t – market itself as the home of the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Under a 30-year economic development agreement between the city and the USOC, Colorado Springs can use the “USOC’s famous marks to promote its unique partnership.”
But there are restrictions, and in the past, the city has had to jump through hoops to use the five-ring logo.
Will questions about the massive mural/billboard come up?
Interim Fire Chief Rich Brown will give council members an overview of the Fire Department, and Nick Kittle, public works team leader, will give an overview of the Public Works Department. Six of the nine council members are new, so they’ve been getting a variety of lessons about the city government and Colorado Springs Utilities.
Today’s council meeting is at City Hall, 107 N. Nevada Ave. It starts at 1 p.m.
