Minutes wrong

Recommended Posts

Guest Susie

The minutes say “motion rescinded” when if fact the motion was withdrawn. It never went to a vote, but the word  was used by the motion- maker. 
 

The city manager says the minutes cant be changed. They have not been approved yet.  What’s up with a DRAFT for approval cant be changed, even if the person used the word “recind ”?

I don't know why your city manager (is he a member of the body? does his opinion matter?) says that, but when the minutes are pending for approval, an amendment may be adopted by a majority vote. Even after they are approved (everyone happy?), they can be amended by a 2/3 vote, a majority vote with notice, or a vote of the majority of the entire membership, any one of which will suffice.

The city manager is obviously incorrect.  Can't be changed?? The whole point of reading and approving the minutes is to make sure they are correct--and if incorrect, to correct them.

When the minutes are pending, offer a correction to strike "rescinded" and insert "withdrawn".   That's what was actually done, even if it was called something else at the time.
