Common Council Absenteeism

Times-Union: Absent elected officials could face arrest
RENSSELAER — A city Common Council member proposed a novel way to assure attendance of elected officials at meetings -- fine them or even go to their homes and arrest them.
The measure passed 6 to 2 with two members absent for valid medical reasons, said City Clerk Maureen Nardacci.

The city will hold a public hearing on the issue May 20.
