Motion to Reconsider.
Alderwoman McCormack made a motion to reconsider the LCI items previously approved on January 18, 2005, which motion was duly seconded.
Alderman Healey: “Through the Chair, Mr. President, may I ask what we’re reconsidering?”
President Perez: “Alderwoman Colon, through the Chair, could you tell us what it is we’re going to be reconsidering.”
Alderwoman Colon: “At the first meeting that we had in January, we voted on things that were passed favorably by the LCI Board, the sale of some things to Mutual Housing, some properties. We still want to do those same things, but the problem was that when they were voted on in December 28, 2004, there wasn’t a quorum. In addition, the reason we weren’t aware of that was because the Corporation Counsel who normally attends the meeting wasn’t present that day. There was a junior partner who was not familiar with the ordinance that created LCI. So, he let them go on with business as usual. (I, myself, was in Arizona).”
President Perez: “What we’re reconsidering is the vote that we took because what was sent to us was not properly in front of us, because the vote we took did not have a quorum. So, if you think we should reconsider this and then vote on it, you will be voting ‘yes’. If you don’t, you will be voting ‘no”. If you can’t, you will be abstaining or you can pass.”
Alderwoman Castro: “My question is did they meet? Did they have a quorum? Where they able to pass it?”
President Perez: “The second time around if I understood Alderwoman Colon, yes. The first time, no.”
