A Year Later, ISO is on Council’s agendaBy Roger Straw, May 13, 2018
Almost exactly a year ago (on 05/23/17), Benicia Mayor Elizabeth Patterson succeeded in requesting that Council direct staff to agendize future Council discussion of drafting and adopting a community Industrial Safety Ordinance. The Council voted 4-1 to approve and calendar further discussion.
This was the first step in Benicia’s cumbersome 2-step process for a Councilmember or Mayor to agendize a new topic.
Well, it has taken a year, but the good news is that this item will finally come up on the June 19, 2018 Council agenda. Mark your calendar and plan to attend!

Here are the relevant documents from May of 2017:
- Mayor Patterson’s 5/23/17 request for Council discussion of a Community Industrial Safety Ordinance
- City Council minutes of 5/23/17: excerpt approving future agendizing of “discussion of drafting and adopting an Industrial Safety Ordinance” (1st step in 2-step process)
