Council allows chief to pursue grant

Mayor’s veto of agenda ordinance stands



“I’ve tried to find a way to make this work, and it’s a challenge,” Glover said. 

The motion to allow Grimm to pursue funding for one officer narrowly passed, with Smith, Sellers, Dennis Julius and Nathan Samuel opposed. 



The council agreed to remove two items from its agenda at the beginning of its meeting Monday, including a resolution passed on a 5-4 vote by the council on May 6 that was vetoed by Mayor Mike Moore. 

The resolution, 2013-R-7, would have amended the city’s rule governing how the council’s agenda is modified and approved. 

Under 2013-R-7, a simple majority would have been enough to modify the council’s meeting agenda. A unanimous vote is currently required. 

The council did not discuss the decision to vote on overriding the mayor’s veto, except that there were not enough votes to do so. It would have taken six votes to override the veto. 

The council also tabled 2013-OR-8, an ordinance which would implement a temporary freeze on the use of city-issued credit cards. Council Attorney Scott Lewis said the council is still in the information-gathering stage of designing a new ordinance to govern the use of credit cards by municipal employees. 



The ordinance establishing a new wage administration policy, which passed on first and second readings at the council’s May 6 meeting, was passed on its final reading. 

The only thing changed in the policy prior to its passage was the language of a paragraph that called for wages to be reviewed at a minimum of every two years. The council elected to change the policy to call for wage reviews on an as-needed basis.
