Proposals #1 and #2: proposed for debate and vote at the Tuesday
3:30pm members meeting; if either or both pass, they will next go to
the other democratic meetings for debate and vote.

Proposal #3: proposed for debate and vote for all of the meetings this
coming week simultaneously (the Council members meeting Monday 4:30pm,
and the members civics meeting Monday 6pm and/or Tuesday 3:30pm). If
it passes the council meeting and the civics meetings, then it will
become an amendment.
