Should the Davidson Board of Commissioners be allowed to vote remotely during a meeting?
At the September 11 meeting, the Davidson Board of Commissioners requested a brief analysis of whether it should allow commissioners to vote via phone if they are not able to be present in person at a meeting. Currently, members are allowed to participate in board meetings by phoning in, but are not permitted to vote. Town Attorney Cindy Reid led a discussion; the board of commissioners would like to amend the rules of procedure to allow voting by remote participation, if there is a physical quorum present at the meeting, and have the vote count. They requested that a question be added to Open Town Hall to gather public input. They will likely consider a vote on a potential change in rules of procedure on October 23.
