Not sure where this should go, so here it is....
My ZBA has this need to make motions in the positive. For example, they want to deny a variance request, and the motion states 'move to approve based on blah blah blah'. there is a second and then everyone votes nay
First off, it's confusing. Secondly, it doesn't give the reason for denial which I have a problem with.
They haven't adopted Roberts Rules, or anything like that. Anyone know why they do this, and what is the proper way to make a motion - does it have to be positive?
Thanks for any help!
