Voting Method

Policy 1515
Adopted: April 9, 1985


In all cases when the Board consists of seven (7) elected members, four (4) votes for the motion are considered necessary for the passage of such a motion. Failure to vote is recognized as a vote favorable to the proposal before the Board. Any member may request a roll call vote. On such request, the Chairman shall call the roll and the "ayes" and "nays" recorded. If a member does not have enough information to vote on a subject, or if there is a conflict in interest, the member can abstain from voting by saying the same, which will not be counted as either an "aye" or "nay" vote.
