A meeting quorum shall consist of more than one-half of the total number of authorized members of the body, including any vacant positions. Nonvoting ex officio members, staff and liaisons do not count toward the quorum. Members need not be physically present at a meeting if another means of attendance (e.g. telephonic, internet etc.) has been established by the membership and public meetings law requirements are met. At least a majority of the quorum is necessary to adopt any motion; some motions require the affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of the members present. If the members in attendance do not constitute a quorum, staff or invitees may make informational presentations provided (1) Notes describing the presentations and discussions are made and posted on the City website; (2) no motion, debate or vote or any other official business other than adjournment takes place; and (3) all topics advertised are automatically added to the agenda for the next regularly scheduled meeting.
