20.

Discourage the Use of Cell Phones, Email, Texting, Instant Messaging, and Social Media by City Councilmembers during Official City Meetings (Reviewed by the Agenda & Rules Committee) 
From: Councilmember Davila 
Recommendation: Adopt a Resolution Discouraging the Use of Cell Phones, Email, Texting, Instant Messaging, and Social Media by City Councilmembers during Official City Meetings. The Brown Act prohibits a majority of members of a legislative body from communicating outside of a public meeting on a matter on the agenda for their consideration.   
In order to ensure the full attention of the Council to the public and each other, the use of cell phones with access to email, text-messaging, instant messaging, and social media should be limited as much as possible during City Council meetings. The use of digital technologies outside of the City-provided equipment, upon which Agenda Items and notes can be stored, is distracting, and disrespectful to the democratic process.  
The use of cellphones and telecommunications should explicitly be prohibited during City Council Closed Sessions meetings, as they are confidential. All council meetings require the full and utmost attention of attendees.  
The City Manager is recommended to submit an item to the Council to amend the Council Rules of Procedure and Order to include a moratorium on the use of cell phones by Councilmembers on the dais during council meetings.  
Financial Implications: See report

The analysis should prioritize a 2-lane option that reduces the width of the street and creates many benefits for our community. Refer $250,000 to the budget process to fund this important project.
