INFORMATION:  The Stormwater Advisory Commission was created and recruited in late 2017 and began meeting in early 2018.  The Town Code provision (3.24-15) created 7 positions and those positions were all filled when the Commission initially began meeting.  Subsequently, two members have moved out of town and resigned, and another member is contemplating resigning for personal reasons.  There are no new applicants to the Commission currently.  The language in the Town Code requires a majority of 4 members be present to comprise a quorum.  The Commission has not been able to obtain a quorum at 4 of the last 7 meetings.  To facilitate the ability of the Commission to achieve a quorum when there are vacancies, a text amendment has been drafted that defines a quorum as a majority of the members of the Commission, not counting vacant seats, but at no time shall a quorum be fewer than three voting members. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  There is no fiscal or staff impact with this agenda item. 

 

RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended that the attached resolution amending the Town Code be approved.
