Title
SUBSTITUTE - Amending Section 33.13(1) of the Madison General Ordinances to change the timing of Common Council Executive Committee appointments and clarify that such appointments are subject to Council confirmation and that the terms end at the organizational meeting.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This amendment makes two clarifications to the appointment of the Common Council Executive Committee. First, it clarifies that the newly elected President of the Council is to make the appointment as soon as practicable after the organizational meeting. Second, it clarifies that the appointments are subject to confirmation by the Council.

Both of these amendments are to conform to established practice by the Council.

A substitute was created because a third change was recommended by the CCEC and agreed to by the sponsor. This additional change makes it clear that the terms of the members of the CCEC end at the time of the organizational meeting of the Council in April.
