change to 4-1, rescinding Forex decision
Two aldermen have changed their minds about hiring IFFG.
Alderman Garrie Colhoun brought the motion to the floor following a veto memo circulated to aldermen Monday by Mayor Andre DeBerry. It stated that Roberts Rules of Order requires a two-thirds majority or four votes to rescind or repeal a motion. Two weeks ago the board passed a motion 3-2 to allow Colhoun to change his aye vote for the study to a nay. Alderman Naylond Hayes followed Colhoun to the other side in Tuesday nights vote.
Colhouns motion to rescind the March 22 vote for the Forex study was seconded by Tim Liddy. The motion passed with Colhoun, Hayes, Liddy, and Nancy Hutchens voting aye to rescind. Russell Johnson voted nay.
