MC 2.81: Purpose. The possibility of reclamation of properties in the city that may have been contaminated over the years is great. As the city redevelops and revitalizes its central city areas, it looks to properties which are under utilized because of contamination, and to that end the common council creates the Brownfields Committee to serve as the catalyst and lead entity in this redevelopment process. The committee shall investigate the possibility of remediating and developing parcels of property, provide technical assistance to land owners, provide a clearinghouse of information, and provide a forum for input and information.

2.81.020 Membership. The committee shall be made up of one member of the Economic Development Committee, one member of the Public Health and Safety Committee, and one member of the Community Development Authority or their designee (these members shall be elected by their respective committees); the city's environmental engineer; and up to eleven citizen members appointed by the mayor, subject to confirmation by the city council.

2.81.030 Term of office. The alderpersons, the member of the Community Development Authority, and the environmental engineer shall serve during their terms of office and employment respectively; and the citizen members shall serve three year terms, the initial terms being staggered for one, two, and three years.

2.81.040 Organization. The committee shall elect from its members its officers, adopt its own rules of order, and otherwise organize itself in a manner customary to legislative bodies.

2.81.050 Authority. The committee may, upon a majority vote of a quorum, recommend to the public health and safety committee for ultimate action by the city council any actions it deems necessary to effect the purposes of the committee and of this ordinance.
