decision from the Inspector General.. still not known

As many of you know, the council voted to send a letter to the Inspector General's office asking if the Mayor has the authority to sell the church to Rose, or is it up to the council.
My guess is she has the right to sell. That right was handed over to her via the charter. If the IG rules that the Mayor can't sell it, look for the council to issue another RFP.

at last nights council meeting we learned that the IG will not rule on the request from city council. The council did vote the send the letter to the AG's office. Lets see how long it takes for that office to weigh in.
I've asked M Cannon if the deal with Rose is on hold or not during this waiting period.

here's the meeting.. The council also decided not to fill a position on the Veterans Council due to Deb Butlers law suite.

Update.. the council is sending a letter to the AG's office and asking if the Mayor has the right to sell the church to Rose.

Is this just a power play by the city council or is there some legitimacy to what they are asking?

it's classified as a hail marry... hoping that something sticks. As far as I know, the charter clearly transfers power from the BOS to the Mayor on some issues.. including selling City property. I don't see the AG reversing the decision IMO, but it just furthers the divide between the Mayor and the Council.

I agree with Jim's last statement. This is not going to help the already contentious relationship between these two parties.
