Current through Reg. 47, No. 249; December 28, 2021
Council members shall attend all regularly scheduled Council meetings unless
prevented from doing so by reason of court order, subpoena, business with a
court which has the sole prerogative of setting the date of such business,
death of a family member, illness of the Council member, or hospitalization of
the member's immediate family.
No Council member may be absent from three consecutive regularly scheduled
Council meetings unless the absence is excused for one of the reasons stated in
subsection (1) of this rule. An absence for any reason other than the reasons
stated in subsection (1) constitutes an unexcused absence for the purpose of
declaring a vacancy on the Council. An otherwise excused absence is not excused
if the Council member fails to notify the Board office of the impending absence
prior to the regularly scheduled Council meeting at which the absence will
occur or unless the failure to notify the Board office is the result of
circumstances surrounding the reason for the absence which the Council itself
excuses after the absence has occurred.
(3) "Family" consists of immediate family,
nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and in-laws.
(4) "Immediate family" consists of spouse,
child, child's spouse, parents, parent-in-law, siblings, grandchildren, and
