Troops Sí, Drunks No
By Laura Sanchez
At the Sept. 20 meeting, Council President Michael Cadigan's bill mandating treatment for city employees after a first DWI conviction and firing after a second conviction passed 9-0, as did his bill guaranteeing that vacation and sick leave would accrue normally for city employees on active military duty.
Councilor Sally Mayer's bill redefining what constitutes a two-thirds majority when fewer than nine councilors are present passed unanimously, setting a higher bar for "two-thirds" at six of eight, five of seven, four of six, and four of five. Mayer's bill directing the city to relocate prairie dogs to city open space instead of poisoning them passed 7-1, Cadigan opposed.
