  1. Action items: 


  1. City Sustainability Plan – In August, City Environmental Sustainability Planner R. Muller briefed your Council on the Planning Department’s desire to obtain your Council’s input on an upcoming professional document that is being planned and underway, which will address environmental sustainability. Staff is requesting your Council’s permission to add this as a future agenda item, but which also may be an appropriate component for the 2022 Student Leadership Seminar and the theme of the City’s future growth and ecosystem. 


  1. October 2021 Student Advisory Council Meeting – The City Hall elevator will be down for repairs in the near future. The start date of the repairs is unknown. During the repairs and for legal accessibility purposes, all Council and board meetings will be held across the street at the Fire Department; however, your Council’s regular meeting in October (October 19, 2021) is one date that was not available on the Fire Department’s meeting room calendar. For this reason, City staff suggests that your Council discuss and vote on an alternative meeting date for your October meeting, only for contingency planning purposes (if needed). To this, City staff offers the following dates that do not conflict with other public meetings at the City: Monday, October 18 or Thursdays, October 21 or 28, 2021.  


  1. Informational Items:


  1. Council Budget – The available funding for SAC projects (Projects account nos. GFCC01 and GFCC04) is included in this agenda packet. 
  2. Polo Shirt Order Form – Members may submit forms to City Liaison Emily Campbell. 
  3. Media Waiver Release – If you have not done so, please submit your completed form (included in the orientation packet) to City staff Liaison Emily Campbell. 
  4. Meeting Agendas & Delivery Methods – Following the first SAC meeting on August 17, 2021, the monthly SAC meeting agenda will be emailed to you at least five (5) calendar days prior to each meeting; however, the City liaison sometimes has trouble with emails being undeliverable. Please note: It is SAC Members’ responsibility to get the agenda and review it prior to your meetings (to prepare for discussions, ideas, voting, etc.).  

Another option - pick-up hardcopy of the SAC meeting agenda from City Hall: Visit the Information Desk on the first floor of City Hall and ask for a hardcopy of the SAC agenda packet.  A hardcopy of the agenda will also be available at your meetings.


Reminder your Council’s regular meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month

at 4PM, August through April, at Titusville City Hall. 


Special meetings may be scheduled as necessary.
