City Councilor Colin F. LePage.
A routine agenda marks tonight’s first regular meeting of the newly-composed Haverhill City Council.
An agenda item by Councilor Colin F. LePage, requesting a discussion on council rules and regulations, is a formality following council rules to refer a review by its Administration and Finance committee (A&F), according to LePage.
“The A&F Committee will be reviewing the council rules per our Rule 1: ‘Within the first 60 days of each term of a city council, the members of the city council shall vote to approve, amend, add, or disapprove of its rules and regulations,’” LePage told WHAV.
Also on the agenda, councilors are scheduled to vote on “non-confirming” appointments by the mayor, including the newly-formed independent salary commission, to be chaired by former Mayor John J. Guerin Jr. It would “study the salaries of elected officials in the city and make a recommendation.”
In addition, Councilor Melinda E. Barrett requests a discussion about “speeding on Salem Street.”
The Haverhill City Council meets at 7 p.m., tonight, in Theodore A. Pelosi Jr. Council Chambers at Haverhill City Hall.
