Mayor Gary Herzig said four of the seven Council members are away on vacation at the same time – Dave Rissberger, Third Ward, Dana Levinson, Fifth Ward, Russ Southard, Sixth Ward and Joe Ficano, Eighth Ward. At least four member are needed for the quorum necessary to call a meeting to order.
There were no plans to reschedule the meeting, he said, but all Council committee meetings scheduled for next week will take place.
The mayor said he couldn’t recall the last time a Common Council meeting – they are scheduled the first and third Tuesday of each month – had to be cancelled due to lack of a quorum.
City Clerk Nancy Powell said one other had been canceled during the six years she has been in her position, but she could not recall the date of it.
