Ordinance 11683, Section 4, as amended, and K.C.C.1.24.035 are each hereby amended to read as follows:

All regular or special meetings of council committees shall be regular or special council meetings, pursuant to council rule 4.F.

Each Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. shall be reserved for special standing committee meetings and each fourth and fifth Wednesday of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. shall be reserved for special regional committee meetings as needed.

If a special meeting for more than one committee is called for the same time and location, the meeting for which the agenda was first filed with the council clerk shall have precedence for use of the meeting location. This subsection A.1.b. does not apply to special meetings of the budget and fiscal management committee for purposes of considering the county executive's annual budget proposal, which shall be called by the chair of the budget and fiscal management committee.
