Interesting. If the City Council doesn’t like the contents of the city charter, they just change it at whim. Is that their attitude toward all local laws? Don’t we keep hearing that business doesn’t like uncertainty? These “pro-business” Councilors have just added extreme uncertainty into the mix. Good Job, guys.

Article VI, Section 45 of the City Charter defines a quorum as “a majority of all the members”.  Article IV, Section 36 states that “the council shall consist of seven members . . .”  Thus, there is good reason to interpret that language (“all the members”) as defining a quorum to require four members.

What does John Shaver have to say about this nonsense?

John Shaver will say whatever the ventriloquist makes him say.
