Council Couldn't Vote on Attendance

Capital News 9: No vote on attendance policy [article & video report]

A Rensselaer Common Council vote to pass a new attendance policy is on hold. That's because not enough members showed up for the vote Wednesday night.

If the proposal gets the go-ahead, common council members would get their pay docked between $15 and $50 for missing meetings. The city clerk says common council members have been missing regular meetings, workshops and even budget meetings.

The video report does say that two missing members had a legitimate medical excuse.
