And If City Council Members Stay for the Whole Meeting, They Get a Gold Star
The city secretary, or a person designated by the city secretary or the city manager to record attendance of city council members at a meeting, shall maintain a record of each city council member's absences so that such absences can be used in determining the member's annual compensation under Chapter III, Section 4 of the Dallas City Charter.Update at 11:50 a.m.: Rudy Bush reports that the measure passed council, but not without some opposition from the likes of Steve Salazar, Ann Margolin, Vonciel Jones Hill and Carolyn Davis. In fact, said Davis of Leppert's proposed rule change, "I feel like I'm in a strong mayor form of government. It's wrong. It's just wrong. It's absolutely wrong."
