§ 5. Discharge of Committee.  


Latest version.
  • If the City Council desires to remove a matter from the jurisdiction of a committee before the committee has made its report, it may, at a regular meeting, discharge the committee from further consideration of the matter. A motion to discharge a committee shall require a two-thirds vote, unless previous notice has been given, in which case the motion shall pass by a majority vote. If passed, the motion to discharge has the effect of immediately bringing before the City Council the subject matter discharged from the committee.
