By a 4-3 vote, the Sedona City Council voted to eliminate its existing resident commissions. The vote took place during a special meeting Wednesday, May 29, with council members Dan McIlroy, Jessica Williamson, Mark DeNunzio and Barbara Litrell voting in favor of the elimination of all resident commissions.

Sedona City COuncilwoman Barbara Litrell was joined by Councilman Dan McIlroy, Councilwoman Jessica Williamson and Vice Mayor Mark DiNunzio in a 4-3 vote eliminating several city commissions.Mayor Rob Adams said Thursday, May 30, the entire council agrees that these commissions were not as cost-effective as they’d like, but eliminating them altogether sends the wrong message to the public.

“I think this was a drastic leap going from talk of restructuring the commissions to eliminating them altogether,” he said. Adams said public commissions have been around since the city’s incorporation 25 years ago. So instead of eliminating them, he was hoping to find a “hybrid” solution in combining some of the commissions such as Arts & Culture, Art in Public Places Committee and Historic Preservation to make them more cost-effective but to keep them in place.
