[Chtechcomm] Agenda for June 21 Technology Committee Meeting

Ralph and All,
Many of us have been wondering the same thoughts about Council and Manager
feedback.  Some research was done by Terri, who cites the following example.
Although perhaps a less complicated subject, these offer some guidance and
templates for discussion:

Here's an example of what we need to do with the Technology Plan -

Plan submitted by Public Art Commission:
0Annual%20Public%20Art%20Plan.htm  (Text rather than spreadsheet, linked to
capital improvement plans--in other words integrated with other Town
planning process, addresses interaction with other departments/boards, does
not include all the detail that our plan has)
Managers recommendation/resolution for adopting the plan:
-06%20Public%20Art%20Plan.htm  (defines the details--such as the scope of
the commission's input, budget, etc.)

Thanks for feedback on the opening dialogue.  Keep 'em coming!

One area of concern I have had for sometime is that we rarely have any
direct feedback from the Council regarding reactions to those things that
have been proposed.  I would like to see some sort of mechanism put in place
that documents the Council's reactions to our proposals so we have a better
idea of how to proceed going forward.  We should have a collaborative
relationship that aids both sides in doing what is best for our citizenry.

Good Morning,
The agenda for our regular meeting on Tuesday evening was posted on the
Town's web site here
<http://www.townofchapelhill.org/ABC/agendas/technologyagenda.htm> . The
text of the agenda is coped below, for your convenience. I understand that
several other Council Members, including Mark Kleinschmidt, may also attend.
This promises to be a most informative meeting and I trust you will be able
to attend (I know Brandon Perkins is away on business).
As I mentioned in yesterday's preview message, I would like to know your
thoughts on what you would like to learn from the Mayor and Manager in
advance, as I prepare a brief introductory message. This is "listen and
learn time" to help achieve our Committee's mission and purposes.
