The Feb. 13 Linden City Council meeting had a standing-room-only attendance of more than 60 citizens.
At issue was a proposed repeal of an amendment to the Linden Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) bylaws that was approved by the council in December.
During the meeting, Linden City Attorney Gary Albertson spoke about the December amendment of the LEDC bylaws, which imposed new term limits on LEDC board members.
“The thing that was brought to me was apparently there was a situation where some term limits were voted on at the last city council meeting, there were some questions if that was a lawful vote or whether or not the city council had the authority to take that action,” Albertson said, “It is my legal opinion that you (the council) do not have the authority to change their bylaws currently as they are written.”
