Council changes committees to four
Placeholder Image
MONROE - A revision of city code provided a lively discussion on Robert's Rules of Order and how much city aldermen can participate at the committee level when the Monroe Common Council last week debated changing the composition of standing committees to four members. The change in the code made each committee uniform with four members by removing the designation of alternate. It included a specification that if committee members found themselves tied on an issue, it would be automatically moved to full council for a decision.
