The Sonoma City Council is holding an emergency meeting this afternoon on proposed safety improvements to Broadway. The meeting will be a continuation of Wednesday night’s meeting in which councilmembers voted against reconsidering the August decision to re-stripe the road. City officials announced yesterday that there was an “incorrect interpretation” of Rosenberg’s Rules during Wednesday’s vote. Councilmember Sandra Lowe abstained from voting, and City Attorney counted that as a “no” vote, while city officials say Lowe’s vote should not have counted. That changes the tally from Wednesday’s vote from 3-2 to 3-1, which still does not meet the two-thirds threshold needed to pass.
