Title

Amending Section 33.01(4)(d) of the Madison General Ordinances to clarify that subcommittees may establish their own subcommittees.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  Some larger subcommittees may desire to create their own subcommittee made up of members of the subcommittee.  Although the City Attorney reads Sec. 33.01(4)(d), MGO, as allowing this, this ordinance amendment makes that clear.
