Motion Wording

Is there any guideline for how motions are to be written in the minutes?  The secretary of our local Planning Commission words them awkwardly, I believe.

 

See the difference?

1. Motion from Mark Epstein to hire 5 interviewed candidates to fill vacant positions at the company

2. Motion to hire 5 interviewed candidates to fill vacant positions at the company by Mark Epstein.

Mr. Lages is correct.  The time to "clean up" the language of a motion is before it is finally voted on.  

As far as the two alternative wordings you presented, I think it is just a personal preference.... but again, the wording that appears in the minutes should be the exact wording of the motion as it was voted on.

Note:  The name of the person who made the original motion usually appears first, rather than last, but that is more by custom than by any rule.
