Please feel free to share this information with others who might be interested. If you’re unable to attend on March 1, the meeting will be recorded and available for later viewing as well.
There are currently 83 committees, sub-committees, boards, commissions and ad-hoc groups listed as active within Madison’s government machine. This number fluctuates depending on agenda items brought forth in the Council’s every other week Tuesday meeting.
How can anyone possibly keep track of it all? It is a challenging task even for the most tech saavy person let alone all the rest of us. My goal is to help shine a light on the path you can take to find information on the topic you are interested in.
Here is the current listing of the 83 active committees, boards and commissions. You can search through and find all the notes, public comment, and other documents related to each.
I will be doing another deeper dive post on how to navigate this site.
All of these public meetings are recorded and archived on the Madison City Channel. Here you can look up any meeting you may have missed and replay it again. You can find that archive here
One of the nice features of the archived videos, is that you can see where the agenda items start in the video and you can jump to those sections. They are represented by the yellow dots you see in the image to the left here.
The meetings are also posted to the City of Madison YouTube Channel, here you will find those meetings as well as other featured videos.
UPDATE 12/4/2020: The board was only able to get through the first 4 agenda items as the board members navigated getting to know each other as well as the framework governing the board. There were a number of questions about who nominated the board members as well as who determined which board members received two, three or four year appointments. According to council staff member Karen Kapusta-Pofahl, the Council President and the Mayor decided the initial terms. The newly appointed board members were able to decide that the Chair and Vice-Chair would serve 2 year terms.
