Opinion Affirms Board Chair’s

Right To Name Committee Chairs

COOPERSTOWN – County Attorney Ellen Coccoma today released her opinion sought by county representatives to settle a dispute on naming county Board of Representatives’ committees, and she affirms the status quo.

“The board chair has the authority to appoint committee chairs and …  a committee does not have the authority to choose its own chair,” the county attorney concluded.

Last week, two committees – Health & Education and Performance Review – voted on their chairs after county Rep. David Bliss, R-Cooperstown/Otsego, suggested that, since that board chair power is not specifically designated in the board’s bylaws,  it should be governed by Robert’s Rules of Order, which enables committees to elected the chairs.
