AGENDA

 

The Charter of the City of Midland states that the Mayor shall preside over all meetings of the City Council.  The Charter also states that at its first regular meeting, the City Council shall select one of its members to serve as Mayor.  Prior to the City Council selecting a Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem, each Councilman must be administered the Oath of Office by the City Clerk.

 

Since tonight is the first meeting conducted by the newly elected City Council, the City Clerk will call the meeting to order and administer the Oath of Office to the City Council.  The City Clerk will continue to conduct the meeting until the Mayor and the Mayor Pro Tem are selected by the City Council.  After the Mayor Pro Tem is selected, the City Clerk will resume her responsibilities as Clerk and the Mayor will conduct the remainder of the meeting.

 

After the City Council has selected the Mayor Pro Tem, adopted Rules of Procedure, and made the various City Council appointments to other Boards and Commissions, the City Council will then consider the consent agenda and other items of business.
