HIGH­FILL — Find­ing a work­able meet­ing time has been an is­sue for the High­fill City Coun­cil in Septem­ber, with at least two meet­ings can­celed due to a lack of the nec­es­sary quo­rum to con­duct busi­ness.

The reg­u­lar meet­ing date and time of 6:30 p.m. on the sec­ond Tues­day of the month was can­celed and resched­uled when the mayor, Michelle Ri­eff, learned there would not be enough coun­cil mem­bers for a quo­rum.

Then, on Tues­day, Sept. 18, the meet­ing could not be held be­cause it lacked a quo­rum. In ad­di­tion to the mayor and the city’s trea­surer and recorder, Sta­cie Wil­liamson, the only coun­cil mem­bers present were David Wil­liamson and Mark White.

A ma­jor­ity, or four, of High­fill’s six al­der­men must be present to have a quo­rum.

A new date and time for Septem­ber’s meet­ing were set at 7 p.m. on Tues­day, Sept. 25 (after press time). The meet­ing was sched­uled to fol­low the 6:30 p.m. plan­ning meet­ing.
