TO AMEND TITLE 2 OF THE BLOOMINGTON MUNICIPAL CODE ENTITLED "ADMINISTRATION AND PERSONNEL" - Re: Amending BMC 2.04.420 (Motion to adjourn or recess) to Place Greater Limits on the Duration of Council Meetings That They May End at a Reasonable Hour

This ordinance is authored by Councilmember Volan and amends Section 2.04.420 of the Bloomington Municipal Code (Motion to adjourn or recess) to provide that any meetings of the Common Council or its committees shall not continue after five and a half hours from the meeting's call to order or after 11 :59 p.m. local time without unanimous consent of the members present. Note: At the October 6, 2021 Regular Session, the Council adopted Amendment 02, which revised the paragraph (c) to be added to BMC 2.04.420 by providing that a motion to adjourn (or a motion to rise and report in Committee of the Whole) made and seconded after five and half hours from the meeting's call to order or after 11:59 p.m. local time, whichever occurred first, would not require a vote and would have the effect of ending the meeting.
