The Lawrence City Commission will handle a light agenda at its meeting this week.

As of Monday afternoon around 2:30 p.m., the City Commission has no business listed on the regular agenda for its Tuesday meeting.

There are, however, items to consider on the meeting’s consent agenda, which is reserved for items generally considered routine that can be approved by one vote from commissioners without any discussion.

This week, the list includes an extension of the city’s professional services agreement with Clarion Associates for consulting work on the ongoing Land Development Code update process and the 2024 annual action plan and investment summary for the federal Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnerships Program, which are grants facilitated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The City Commission will convene at 5 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 6 E. Sixth St., and immediately recess into executive session for approximately 30 minutes to discuss employer-employee negotiations. The regular meeting will reconvene at 5:45 p.m. A live stream of the meeting can be viewed via Zoom or the city’s YouTube channel.
