    Call the question

    After a motion has been made and a second follows, the chair asks for discussion. After discussion has come to an end, and a person is recognized to speak, they announce "I call the question" does the membership have to move, second and vote on "calling the question"? Or do you just procede to the motion that was on the floor and vote?
  2. I am chair of a local planning commission. One member of our commission is requesting that, once we close the public hearing, we allow discussion among the commission members PRIOR to a motion. Our municipal code clearly states that the current version of Roberts Rules of Order are to be followed by our governing body and all other boards and commission. Our legal counsel is also not comfortable allowing discussion prior to a motion - mostly due to the code requirements, I believe. This issue raises its head about once every six months. I have heard of other commissions and groups allowing this but the issue is whether the discussion remains germain to the subject at hand. In any given hearing we can be looking at several action items. Any thoughts?
  3. After an exuctive session, can one who was in the executive session discuss issues discussed in the executive session with another board member who was in the same executive session. In this scenario, both board members who were in the executive session would be absolutely certain that they couldn't be overheard by anyone else..
  4. I'm secretary for a club and the club board at the last minute asked me if we could move a discussion that was recorded in the board minutes to the excutive session minutes so that the general members of the club wouldn't see who we were discussing. It is my understanding that minutes are recorded in the order in which they are discussed and if they want an item to remain "private" they need to wait until excutive session is called. Our minutes are posted for club members to see after they have been approved. am I incorrect in thinking we may not move an item if it was discussed in the board meeting? Thanks Mary
  5. A motion is made and seconded and discussion by the Board begins. Does the community have the right to comment at this time or is it only the Board that may discuss the motion?

    Multi-part motion

    Can a motion be made in, say, three parts, seconded, and then followed by discussion and voting on each part separately?
  7. Our school board of 5 memebers doesn't always want the audience (teachers) to comment during discussion of the agenda items. The teachers get a 'teacher report' at the begining of the meeting, but when they talk about items on the agenda during the meeting to be voted on or just be discussed we are not sure of the protocal. Is there a time limit for comments, either per person or in general? And I assume people are called on by the board, but the board must allow comments? Our new board president wants to keep the meeting very breif and doesn't value teacher input and we want to be ready!
  8. Is it permissable to ask staff to leave when discussing staff compensation and performance?
  9. I am a new school board member seeking a solution to a problem I have encountered. If we have an item on our agenda can we discuss it BEFORE a motion is made. My board currently does not allow discussion of an item of business until after a motion has been made and seconded. This leads to problems when particularly controversial or unclear issues are presented to the board. Is there a way to allow discussion to occur before a proper motion is made?
