I just went through a planning commission public hearing and the vice chair recused himself. He then was allowed to present the Special Use permit to his own commission for approval. His client was the developer that will construct the 17 acre complex. There was no disclosure of the conflict. The City attorney said that if he is recused he becomes an ordinary citizen and can perform as a project engineer and do the presentation. What are your thoughts on this? I can’t believe it happened!
Is there a rule when a board member does not declare a conflict of interest? Does not vote on motion put forward, post vote states member was not in favour of it passing and now wants roll call vote when there may have been a possible conflict? Does a new vote need to take place even though the original motion was passed and carried?
