        Weekly Legislative Spotlight

From the Desk of the Council President

Hello Joan,

Welcome to our End of the Year Edition of Akron City Council's Legislative Spotlight and Happy Holidays.

To our new subscribers, we are so excited that you have decided to join us!

Weekly, we share highlights from Council's legislative agenda from the previous Monday's Committee and Council meetings. We also feature the definitions of and information about commonly used terms and acquaint you with council-related facts.

As we reflect on 2022 and all that has transpired, we wanted to utilize the last Legislative Spotlight of 2022 to provide you with a snapshot of Akron City Council's legislative accomplishments for the year.

Please stay connected and abreast of the legislative agenda of Akron City Council.

We believe the information shared in each week's Legislative Spotlight will educate, empower and liberate you to become increasingly engaged with your City Council in making Akron a better place for all its residents.

Wishing You and Yours A Very Hapy Holiday Season & A Prosperous 2023!
