body

Section 1.  Article III, Section 23, Allocation of Councilor Expenses, is hereby amended as follows:

“Section 23.  Allocation of Councilor Expenses.  Each Councilor shall be allocated a maximum annual amount of $20,000 for Council expenses related to discretionary constituent outreach, including but not limited to mailing/notification expenses, District meetings, and small event sponsorships to governmental or not-for-profit entities. The Director of Council Services will evaluate requests for use of the funds, in consultation with legal staff, based whether 1) the expense advances an identifiable goal of the City, 2) the public benefit of the expense outweighs the incidental private benefit, and 3) the expense is in compliance with all applicable City regulations and policies. The annual amount shall be calculated on a fiscal year basis, from July 1 to June 30. The annual amount for newly elected Councilors shall be prorated for the period from January 1 to June 30. This rule shall become effective July 1, 2019.”
