Last night the city council and I had the honor of interviewing 13 fantastic people for the upcoming City Code Task Force. It was so encouraging to meet such qualified applicants; all who want to help our city thrive.
We are very excited to get this task force off the ground. The city council could never tackle such a mammoth project on its own.
The City Code Task Force will be making recommendations to simplify, clarify and prune the code to make it more user-friendly and relevant to our city today. We know of no other city that has attempted something like this, so it will be a learning process for all of us!
In Crystal we have more lines of code than we have citizens, so this really is a huge undertaking, but I expect that it will be very interesting and rewarding work for our volunteers. I have no doubt that all citizens will benefit from and appreciate the results.
We expect the task force to convene their first meeting in June.
