Title
Repealing Section 39.02(3)(b) and renumbering Sections 39.02(3)(c) and (d) to Sections 39.02(3)(b) and (c), respectively, of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate the alternate member positions of the Affirmative Action Commission.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Current configuration of the Affirmative Action Commission is eleven regular members and up to two alternate members. This amendment would eliminate the alternate member positions. The eleven regular members constitute a large enough membership so as to effectively address any abstentions or conflicts of interest that the alternate membership was created to address.
