Conflicting statutes

Guest David Schmidt

Recommended Posts

Our city has two conflicting ordinances regarding who has the power to appoint police and fire chiefs. One says the City manager, one says the Mayor. Can the Mayor as the Chair rule from the chair on which ordinance applies?

This sounds more like a legal question than a parliamentary one but, sure, the chair can make a ruling. And his ruling can be appealed.
