Lack of quorum sinks tonight's planning meeting

Tonight's Sunnyside Planning Commission meeting has been canceled.

According to city spokesman Pam Sandifer, the reason for the cancellation is a lack of quorum.

Sandifer said of the five commission members, only three were available for Wednesday evening's 7 p.m. meeting. One is vacationing in Hawaii and another has been hospitalized.

A quick legal review this morning, said Sandifer, revealed that the three remaining members of the commission do not constitute a quorum.

Sandifer said city officials are hoping that the last minute cancellation of the meeting does not inconvenience those who were planning on attending.
