Troy City Council Calls Special Meeting on Mayoral Replacement Procedure
Council will meet Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Troy City Hall.
By Jen Anesi
Troy City Council will meet this Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the council boardroom at Troy City Hall to review and discuss "the conflicting requirements of the Troy Charter and State Election Law regarding the appointment of a replacement of the Mayor position and the process to fill that position's remaining term (until November 2015)."
The purpose of the meeting is also "to discuss and determine whether an alternate course of action needs to be pursued." According to Troy City Attorney Lori Grigg Bluhm, one of the suggested alternate courses would be a February special election to elect a new mayor.
“We are not comfortable having a February election because that would require us to violate some of our charter provisions," Bluhm said. "It's not enough notice."
The meeting was called at the request of councilmen Wade Fleming and Dave Henderson.
