Public Quorum Question Period

March 3, 2013

The accepted definition of Quorum is: the minimum number of members of an assembly that must be present to make a meeting valid.

At Oliver’s Council meetings, so seldom is the public present that publicly posed questions during the prescribed Public Quorum Question Period are as rare as rocking horse shit. Does that make such meetings invalid?

Is it council’s responsibility to maintain the taxpayer’s budget or to form special committees to oversee pet projects?

Why is it not the municipal manager’s measurement & responsibility to make projects happen within the Council’s/Taxpayer’s budget & timetable?

To which South Okanagan Desert town council does V.J. Powell refer to when he states, “This city council can’t fart, sneeze or blow their noses without a special committee to do the job that they were elected to do”? [V.J. Powell (PWN, p8, 02.20.13)]
