Council doesn’t have quorum

Meeting reschedules for next week

July 8, 2004

Tuesday's Baldwin City Council meeting was one of the shortest on record. In fact, to be technical, the meeting didn't even get underway.

Only three council members were in attendance Tuesday, which left the council one member short of a quorum. Both Ken Wagner and Tony Brown were absent, and because there must be at least four council members present to have a quorum, no city business could be taken care of Tuesday.


The council, which was meeting on Tuesday because of Monday's holiday, was to have discussed a number of items including parking restrictions in Baldwin subdivisions, a grace period for utility bills and zoning classifications at FireTree Estates.

Mayor Ken Hayes apologized to the handful of community members in attendance and blamed the situation on a lack of communication.

The meeting has been rescheduled for Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the Baldwin City Public Library.
