§ 3-2-21.16. Voting  


Latest version.
  • Passage of a motion shall require the affirmative vote of a majority of commissioners present and voting at a meeting at which a quorum is present. Unless otherwise specified in these procedures, and subject to the provisions hereof, a majority shall mean at least one-half (½) of the commissioners present plus one (1) commissioner, excluding abstentions. When a two-thirds (2/3) majority is specified, a majority vote shall mean at least two-thirds (2/3) of the commissioners present excluding abstentions. In the event the chairman elects to abstain from voting on any matter, a majority is determined without including the chairman in the count of commissioners casting votes; if the chairman elects to cast a vote on any matter, a majority is determined by including the chairman in the count of commissioners casting votes. In the event of a tie vote, the chairman shall vote to break the tie.
