Confirmations must be renewed by vote of the Council if new officers do not assume the positions within three months. Seconded by Francine Nicholson, Mary Walker, and Mike Wilson. Passed by a 9-0 vote.

    Both motions were seconded by Mike Wilson. The Chair placed both motions on the Agenda for future discussion.
