NEWS: Our official ANC letters now available on our website!

We are pleased to announce that we have updated our Dupont Circle ANC website (www.dupontcircleanc.net) to list all our resolution letters month-by-month, going back to March 2010.  We will continue to post our resolution letters each month.  You can find all these resolution letters by going to “Documents” and then “Resolution Letters by Month,” or by using the following link: http://www.dupontcircleanc.net/documents/resolutions-letters/.

When the ANC passes a resolution on a matter — for example, supporting a liquor license application, raising a concern to the D.C. Council, or providing comment on proposed legislation — we share a letter incorporating the resolution with the relevant D.C. agency or other body.  The letter is signed by the Chairman with the line “ON BEHALF OF THE COMMISSION.”  The letter serves the official notice of our action to the relevant agency or body.  They are to give the resolution in the letter “great weight.”  In the past, these letters were mailed or sometimes faxed, but since around 2005 the ANC has shared almost all of its formal letters as e-mailed PDF files.

This new web page is part of our effort to make the ANC 2B website a comprehensive resource for the community, and also to promote open government.  Enjoy perusing our letters!
