The next regular city council meeting scheduled for October 9th will address some of the concerns discussed in this forum. Here's hoping there will be less BS and more leadership and progress...

Fischer just said- Yes, he is proposing an ordinance that will require ALL members of ALL committees and Boards to be residents within the legal limits of the City of Salem. That means you have to live here, not just own a house here.

Williams has asked for a report from the Parks and Recreation Board at every council meeting and has gotten nothing but excuses. I think the citizens should ask Mr. Bland to put up or shut up, don't you?

Why not use the same residency test as the IRS or State tax dept to determine residency?

I think council needs to flex its authoirty Tuesday Night by removing several members of the park board because they are using the park board as a crutch to attack the 4 council members that voted to remove Donald

Fischer explained it like this--Yes the charter says members must be residents of Salem, but Stamm found a loophole, that says 4 people must be residents of the city- the rest can be from outside the city. Stamm found ways to get around the law in several situations. That's how he became Mayor. And to undo these loopholes council has to pass a motion even though the charter already says something.

Well then,he's in the right. Why didn't you say so weeks ago. Loop hole can be the law ya know. You might call it a loop hole,
Judge might say its the law,now what Salem is stuck with a big legal bill and possibly a counter suit.

Don't mess it up with an unnecessary ordinance. State law, Chapter 8, Article 21 WVCode requires all members to be residents and freeholders of the city.
