Rules of Governance

An interesting item was brought to my attention this evening by former School Board Chair Ann McNees, regarding City Council’s “Budget and Tax Committee:”

From the City Charter (2004 revision), Article II, Section 8, Council Rules — Transaction of Business:

The last sentence reads,

There shall be no standing committee of the council.

So, is the “budget and tax committee,” comprised of just three members appointed by either the Mayor or the Council, an illegal committee?
