FIRST COUNCIL MEETING 2016

7 pm Monday night 1/4/16 is the time for this years Council reorganization meeting at the Court Room.

Most of the functioning will be devoted to the swearing in of Cory Storch for his 4th 4 year term as 2nd Ward Councilman and  Barry Goode succeeding Vera Greaves as  the 1/4 Councilor.

The change in political allegiance representation will not change the  majority except when only a rump quorum is present

The business session  is mostly routine stuff some of which will be  passed and forgotten when the Council gets down to its duties. Most important are appointments to Boards and  Authorities, some  of which have been unfilled  in the past.

There is one notable change in the annual appointments since Carl L. Marshall, Esq. has been nominated to replace perennial chief municipal court judge Joan Robinson Gross.

The election of Council President for 2016 is without doubt the  most important action the Council will take. Since the JG adherents still have a  4:3  majority they will be  able to select that official.  Unless there has been a compromise the choice most likely  may be between Rivers for a third term or GHM Gloria Taylor. The Council's years will be dependent on the selection of that official.

The other Council Office to be filled is Chairperson of the Committee of the Whole, a position which Councilor Brown has filled the` past year sans the commentaries of her predecessor. 

During the public comment session will anyone question the BOE 's changing its election date?
