What is on a Council Agenda?

The agenda lists the business items that will be considered at the Council meeting and the order in which they will be discussed. The agenda also includes possible actions the Council may wish to take on each item, however, the Council is not restricted to the actions listed on the agenda. The agenda also often contains a consent agenda which is a tool used to streamline council meeting procedure by collecting routine, non-controversial items into a group whereby all are passed with a single motion and vote. Commonly, no debate is allowed on the consent agenda or on any item included in it; however, Council members may remove items from the consent agenda for separate consideration.
