Council declares meeting, actions invalid

City Council passed a resolution Friday night (Jan. 22) that declared last month’s special meeting void and all actions made during that meeting, including the approval of a sale agreement with Chetty Builders, also invalid.

“We want to be clear that the actions we are taking are about the meeting, not the contract,” said City Council President Ed Simpson. “We don’t need to read into anything else at this point.”

Council conducted the meeting Friday night, which was also considered a special meeting, to review the legality of last month’s special meeting. City officials called this special meeting instead of waiting until Monday’s regularly scheduled council meeting because there was a 30-day deadline to rescind the Dec. 23 meeting.

Do you think it was a good idea for the new City Council to delare last month's special meeting void?

I sure do!! When a meeting is called 5 minutes before a cocktail party given by the person who the meeting is about there is something smelly there. I'm so glad that there is someone finally paying attention to what is going on under the table. Bravo new council just keep up the good work.

So if the meeting was invalid then anything that was decided on at that meeting is also invalid. Correct?

Good Job new council!
