Topic: 

A Resolution to Amend the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors Bylaws Section 6-4, Committee Attendance

 

Topic Description:

The 2006 Bylaws and Rules of Procedure of the Board of Supervisors contain specific attendance requirements for members of standing and ad hoc committees to which the Board appoints members.  Presently, a member who fails to attend 75% of scheduled meetings shall be held to have forfeited committee membership.  Since, due to extenuating circumstances, it may not always be possible for committee members to meet a 75% attendance requirement, the Board wishes to consider an amendment to the Bylaws and Rules of Procedure.  The amendment will present an opportunity for consideration to be given to the circumstances of those committee members who fail to meet the attendance requirement.

Section 4-12 of the Bylaws and Rules of Procedure states that a majority vote of the entire Board is required in order to effect an amendment, provided that the proposed amendment must first be presented to the Board, with the vote on the amendment to occur at a subsequent meeting.  The Board was presented with the proposed amendment in meeting assembled July 13, 2006.  The attached resolution is being presented for a vote by the Board.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.
