Title: RE: [nc-deletes] FW: [council] Concerns Regarding Report of DeletesTask Force
Adding in a short timeframe for an Implementation committee could be a solution here, and the staff comments/analysis should be taken into account. This Implementation Committee should come before final approval by the Council in my view. ... I thought such a process had been added in as a standing part of process... if not, perhaps it could be for this particular report. Since Deletes too, isn't fully within the new PDP... :-)
I'll make only one other comment. It was originally a little hard for the other two TFs [including me as chair/co-chair] to think that they needed an Implementation Committee report. Both were exceptionally well received by the TF's when they were completed, and both added great value to the work of the other two TFs. You might note that both TF's thanked the IC for their contribution and made modifications in their report to take their recommendations into account.
In my view, the goal at Council should be to ensure that policy is fully examined for implementation issues and unintended consequences before voting. I'm anxious to get to "final" on this policy myself, since, again, WHOIS and Transfers TF policy recommendations assumed there would be a uniform deletions policy.
By the way, as I recall the process, staff comments in this case would have to come after the final report was posted, because there was really no other apparent way to get them incorporated... need to be based on final report, etc. But, my recommendation would be that the Council chair appoint an implementation committee, to work with staff, and provide a report to the TF. Then the report should come to Council for vote.
It would be good to have the report on the agenda for Council for discussion purposes this week, though.
