Title

Resolution to Override Mayor’s Veto of R-19-325 (8 Votes Required)

Body

Whereas, On July 1, Council passed Resolution R-19-325, “Resolution to Order Election, Approve Charter Amendment of the Ann Arbor City Charter Sections to Establish Non-Partisan Nomination and Election for the Offices of Mayor and Council and Determine Ballot Language for this Amendment;”

 

Whereas, The City Charter, Section 4.5(a) provides for veto power of the Mayor as follows:

 

“Within seventy-two hours, exclusive of Sundays and holidays, after a meeting of the Council, the Clerk shall present the record of the meeting to the Mayor for approval. Except in cases of appointment or removal of officers by the Council, the Mayor may disapprove, in whole or in part, any action taken by the Council by resolution, order, or otherwise. The Mayor shall file the disapproval and reasons therefor, in writing, with the Clerk within seventy-two hours, exclusive of Sundays and holidays, following presentation of the record to the Mayor. Such disapproval shall be reported by the Clerk at the next regular meeting of the Council or at a special meeting called for consideration thereof. Council action disapproved by the Mayor shall be of no effect, unless re-affirmed by the concurring vote of at least eight members of the Council within thirty days from the time such disapproval is reported by the Clerk.”

 

Whereas, On July 5, 2019, the Mayor vetoed Resolution R-19-325 by filing a disapproval with the City Clerk;

 

Whereas, City Council has the right to override the Mayor’s veto by reaffirming the vetoed resolution by the concurring vote of at least 8 members of the Council within 30 days from the time the disapproval is reported by the Clerk; and

 

Whereas, The City Clerk has reported the disapproval at the Council meeting of July 15, 2019;

 

RESOLVED; That the City Council hereby reaffirms Resolution R-19-325 and overrides the Mayor’s veto of that resolution.
