We took a closer look at agenda item # 12 for tonight's city council meeting: "Consideration of a resolution whereby all matters which affect the City of Rye shall be made known to the entire City Council and be subject to the assent by vote of a majority of its members."
Councilman Joe Sack is the sponsor. MyRye.com asked Sack to give us a little color on where he is going with this one. He told us: "I start with the basic belief that this [resolution] is a fundamental proposition that is not open to dispute. In that case it is worthwhile stating. If it is not happening, all the more reason to reaffirm it. I must admit that I have a sense that it does not always happen, but in most cases if it is not happening, I have no way of knowing for sure. However, I would expect my colleagues to acknowledge it. If this becomes an issue at the meeting, I am sure we will get into a discussion about specific instances then."
Sack is no shrinking violet and has tangled with other council members before. We'll have to watch this one.
