Mr. Buell: I move Ordinance #58-2005.
Mr. Rattner: Second.
President Greenbaum: It has been moved and seconded. Is there any discussion?
Mr. Buell: Just one question, how does this affect the original pay to play statute?
President Greenbaum: This is intended to correct the intent of what we have originally adopted. It was to allow anybody to contribute up to $400.00, $2,500.00 per year, there was some language in the second paragraph which made it questionable and conflicting with the first paragraph. The only additional language talks about allowing up to the monetary limit that we had originally discussed. Is there any other comments? Seeing none, Roll Call.
ROLL CALL: Passed Unanimously
President Greenbaum: Ordinance #58-2005 has passed on second reading and I hereby direct the Clerk to forward a copy of same to the Mayor and publish the notice of adoption as required by law.
President Greenbaum: At this point in time I will open it up to the public for anyone who wishes to make comments recognizing that we have a whole other meeting and there will be another public portion at the end of the conference meeting. Seeing none, I close it to the public.
