SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City City Council passed a resolution at Tuesday’s meeting to establish a ruling for electronic participation in council meetings.

At its Jan. 25 work session, the majority of the council expressed interest in pursuing the establishment of an electronic meeting procedure.

Councilors would use the electronic mechanism if a councilor were unable to attend a formal meeting. Councilors said they’re hopeful the electronic outlet will allow for a decrease in split voting.

The council noted they only wanted to use the new technology rarely.

The service is open to all groups who hold meetings in Harvat Hall.
