General Council

Council is a corporate body and can only make decisions by resolution. This means a motion must be put to a properly-convened meeting and can only be passed by a majority vote.

With the exception of the Mayor, who chairs the meeting, all members present at a Council meeting vote on every motion put to the meeting. The Mayor has a casting vote only if the voting is tied.
