There was a meeting of the New Rochelle City Council on March 23, 2010.
1. City Council approved the resolution for Charter Change to allow the City Manager to appoint or remove the Civil Service Administrator.
2. No action was taken on the proposal by the BID to charge for parking at night in the downtown municipal lots and to charge for parking on Main Street until ll p.m.
3. Several proposed Charter Amendment proposals requested by Councilman St. Paul were not accepted: Mayor Bramson stated, you need another Council to make changes. Zoning board appointments by district instead of by the City Manager cannot be changed because this is a matter of state law. Two items: term limits, and increasing the fund balance to $300,000 were rejected by a 4 (Democrats) to 3 (Republicans) votes. Comments submitted to the City Manager concerning the IDA (Industrial Development Agency) will be discussed at a later meeting.
