Winter recess filing deadlines for the Executive

Below are filing guidelines related to the Council's upcoming recess and the effect of the end of the Council period on legislation.


Winter recess begins on December 23rd and the next business day will be January 4th. Legislation may not be filed during recess.

Contracts may be filed by 4pm on December 21st. The count will start on December 22nd and continue to run through recess. Contracts must be complete and accurate for the filing to be accepted to begin the review period on December 22nd. Any contracts filed after the deadline will be rejected and will require re-filing in January.


Reprogrammings may be filed by 4pm on December 8th. The count will start on December 9th and will be deemed approved on December 23rd. Any reprogrammings filed during the period of December 9th - 22nd will be deemed approved in January 2021 because recess tolls the review period.


GBMs may be filed by 4pm on December 18th. The count will start on December 21st and will be deemed approved on December 23rd. Any GBMs filed during the period of December 21st - 22nd will be deemed approved in January 2021 because recess tolls the review period.


Resolutions subject to a statutory review period (except collective bargaining agreements) may be filed by 10am on December 14th. The review period will begin on December 16th and will carry over (with a new PR#) in Council Period 24. Any resolutions filed after this deadline will be rejected and will have to be re-filed in January.


Resolutions filed in CP23 with no attached statutory review period will die and will have to be re-filed in January.


Please file all measures via LIMS e-filing portal at lims.dccouncil.us/efiling.
