Title
Repealing Section 33.12 and amending Section 33.52 of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate the Committee on Community Gardens.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance will eliminate the Committee on Community Gardens. In addition, because the Committee on Community Gardens is being eliminated, a specific community gardening representative will become part of the membership of the Food Policy Council. Some other updates are being made to the ordinance to reflect the change in job title for the Food Policy Director and to better delineate the Food Policy Council’s duties and responsibilities. The effective date of this ordinance will be January 1, 2017, to enable the Committee on Community Gardens to prepare any final reports and hold its last meeting in December, and to allow the Food Policy Council to plan for its new responsibilities prior to the dissolution of the Committee on Community Gardens.
