Special Council meeting called for Saturday

December 04, 2015

Council President Mike Freeman and Vice President Margo Sommerville have called a Special Council Meeting for Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015, 8:30 a.m. in Council Chambers. Under discussion will be an ordinance that will set the date for the organization meeting of the newly-elected Council for January 4, 2016. The ordinance also will extend the terms of the existing Council officers until their successors are elected at the organization meeting. New Council officers are usually elected at the last meeting in December, before the holiday break. However, with four new Council Representatives taking office in January, Freeman suggested delaying the vote so they could have a voice and a vote in selecting Council's leaders.
