*Selection of Representatives:  ARTICLE VI – MCCMC Bylaws


Section 1. The COUNCIL’s selection of its officers and of appointees to the County, regional, and

other bodies, shall be governed by the following procedure:


a. When an election is to be held or when an appointment is to be made, letters of

candidacy will be received through the President, who will transmit names of

candidates to member cities. A complete list of candidates will be sent to each

member city prior to the meeting at which the selection of a representative or appointee

is made.

b. In the event no member seeks an appointment, the President will seek out candidates

for the position.

c. Nominations may be made:

1. Through the Executive Committee.

2. By a member of the COUNCIL from the floor at the meeting when the selection

is made.

3. No nominations from the floor will be accepted at a prior meeting.


*Voting Procedure (per Bylaws amendment 10-26-11):



Each member city shall have one vote.  Voting may be by voice vote unless a roll call vote is requested by any individual Councilmember.  In a roll call vote, the representatives in attendance from each member city shall collectively cast a vote for their city.  In the case of a policy issue, roll call votes shall be cast verbally.  In the event of a committee, board, or other open seat sought by more than one councilmember, the vote may be cast by ballot, one ballot per city. The MCCMC Secretary will collect the ballots, tabulate them, and announce the tabulated result.  City ballots will be available at the end of the meeting for viewing by any MCCMC member.  A majority of votes cast shall be necessary for a decision.
