City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 07/16/2019  
Subject:    Rescheduling the August 6, 2019 Danville City Council Meeting
From: Susan M. DeMasi

COUNCIL ACTION
Business Meeting:     07/16/2019
SUMMARY
Danville has long participated in "National Night Out," a unique crime prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch.  The event is intended to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them now that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.  Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide

This year's National Night Out event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 6, 2019, with activities at multiple sites across Danville.  Because of scheduling conflicts with City Council meetings, levels of participation have been cut short in the past.  For the past several years, City Council agreed to move the regular Tuesday Council meeting to Thursday so that members of City Council and City staff could fully participate in the event.  Therefore, it is recommended that the regular City Council meeting scheduled for August 6th be canceled and a special meeting of City Council be held on Thursday, August 8, 2019.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council approve the attached Resolution canceling the August 6, 2019 regular meeting of Danville City Council and schedule a special meeting on Thursday, August 8, 2019.
