Members of the Metropolitan County Council
Ladies and Gentlemen:
At the request of numerous Members of Council, I am calling a Special Meeting of the Council pursuant to Section 3.04 of the Charter of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County to be held on Friday, August 21, 2009, at 4:30 p.m. for the purpose of considering the motion to reconsider the vote on Resolution No. RS2009-881. Rule 34 of the Council Rules of Procedure provides that a motion to reconsider must be considered and finally acted upon at the next regular meeting of the Council or at a special meeting called for that purpose.
Pursuant to Robert’s Rules of Order, the motion to reconsider the vote on Resolution No. RS2009-881 is not debatable since a motion for the previous question was made and approved prior to the roll call vote on the adoption of the resolution.
No other matters shall be considered at this meeting, and I encourage your attendance.
Diane R. Neighbors
