February 10, 2016 City Council Meeting Agenda

FEBRUARY 10, 2016

Dear Neighbors:

Here’s a link to the agenda for this Wednesday night's City Council meeting:  http://documents.takomaparkmd.gov.s3.amazonaws.com/government/city-council/agendas/2016/packet-20160210.pdf

Two key items -- proposed changes to the Noise Ordinance and to the Landlord-Tenant Relations requirements relating to fees -- were discussed in previous Council meetings and will have "First Reading" votes on Wednesday, with final votes most likely later this month.

I am planning to vote in favor of both items, though I am seeking some technical clarifications to the noise ordinance relating to the situations in which entertainment venues can be shut down for excessive noise and to the operation of the proposed Noise Control Board.

There is also a closed session to consult with legal counsel regarding the Takoma Junction development.

As always, please let me know if you have questions or would like additional information.

Peter Kovar, Takoma Park City Council, Ward One
