ROLL CALL. <br />ELECTION OF MAYOR <br />Mayor Cox expressed his reasons for <br />desiring to serve as Mayor for another <br />year. <br />MINUTES <br />Motion was made to nominate John C. Cox <br />as Mayor and to conduct the election by <br />roll call vote. <br />ELECTION OF MAYOR PRO TEM <br />Motion was made to nominate Evelyn R. <br />Hart as Mayor Pro Tem and to conduct the <br />election by roll call vote. <br />Council Member Strauss stated he could <br />not support the motion. He stated in <br />1984 the City Council decided to leave <br />the option open as to whether the Mayor <br />and Mayor Pro Tem would serve one or two <br />year terms, and by leaving this option <br />open, it gives Council Members an <br />opportunity to be of service in this <br />capacity. He noted that there are four <br />members on the Council who have not yet <br />been Mayor or Mayor Pro Tem and feels <br />that one of the four should be elected. <br />He stated he has been on the Council for <br />almost 10 years and feels he could serve <br />well as Mayor Pro Tem, and therefore, <br />made a substitute motion to conduct a <br />secret ballot for nomination of Mayor <br />Pro Tem and to conduct the election by <br />secret ballot, which motion FAILED. <br />The motion made by Council Member <br />Plummer was voted on and carried. <br />Council Member Sansone reiterated his <br />position again on his desire that the <br />Mayor be elected by the electorate, and <br />stated he felt this was an issue that <br />should be placed on the 1988 November <br />ballot. <br />Motion was made to adopt Resolution No. <br />87 -160 authorizing an allowance of <br />$311.23 per month to the Mayor in <br />accordance with Section 404 of the <br />Charter. <br />B. Reading of Minutes of Meeting of <br />November 9, 1987, was waived, approved <br />as written, and ordered filed. <br />Volume 41 - Page 437 <br />87 -160 <br />Cncl <br />
