The agenda for Tuesday’s City Council meeting includes a resolution presented by three council members for a “proposed request regarding Residency Reporting for all Municipal Elected Officials, as well as Board and Commission Members.” The measure will be referred to the Ordinance Committee.
Councilors Kate Bukovsky, Scott Burns and Michelle Lyons are backing the resolution. Residency validation was raised recently by government watchdog John Marshall Lee.
The resolution calls for “all municipal elected officials including the Mayor, City Council members, as well as Board and commission members appointed by the Bridgeport Mayor provide their current residence street address of record to the Town Clerk’s office by January 31, 2017. In the future, notice of such current residence address shall be provided to the Town Clerk’s office within 30 days of such change or at least affirmed or changed annually before the end of January while such public service is pursued.”
The council meeting will take place Tuesday night at 7, instead of the customary third Monday of the month, due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Council member Milta Feliciano is also proposing a resolution requesting that “on-street parking bans along the portion of Bank Street between Main Street and Broad Street (Downtown) be removed with the posting of appropriate signage or the installation of meters along Bank Street in order to create more onstreet parking spaces.” The resolution will be referred to the Board of Police Commissioners.
