I have a procedural question and we are pretty much stuck. Our lawyer does not seem to be putting too much effort into this...
We had a conditional use petition for the transportation/sight seeing business that no one in town really wanted. It made it to the Council, one of the Council members made a motion to approve, there was no second, Chairman said "motion failed. Next item."
Petitioner is infuriated. Hired a lawyer... Two questions:
1. Is lack of a second means that petition was disapproved? Petitioner claims that, no City Council simply failed to act. Robert's Rules say "If there is no second to your motion it is lost".
2. When and under what conditions could he reapply? Our code is silent.
Your help is greatly appreciated
