Just in: Jane Grote calls 3 Emergency Special Council Meetings

That's right, not just Special; these are Emergency Special

Oh, Lord, what’s happened now with the levy resolution? We thought it was signed, sealed, and nearly delivered. After receiving an email this morning from the Clerk of Council’s office canceling tonight’s Special Council Meeting since the levy resolution passed at last night’s meeting, we’ve just received another stating:

"President of Council, Jane Grote has called an Emergency Special Meeting of Council for tonight at 7:00 PM in Council Chambers. There will be two more Emergency Special Meetings - one for tomorrow night at 7:00 PM and one for Thursday morning at 8:30 AM. These meetings are being called in regards to the Tax Levy Resolution."

2:45 p.m. UPDATE: Per our phone conversation with the Clerk of Council's office, the levy resolution passed at last night's Special Council Meeting was rejected by the Board of Elections today because where the word "additional" appeared erroneously in the text, the word "renewal" should have appeared. The Norwood Law Director's Office is, once again, correcting their mistake, and a corrected version of the resolution will be presented to council tonight.

2:30 p.m. UPDATE:
Per NCT, tonight's Emergency Special Council Meeting will not be televised.
