Snellville officials offer training on meeting rules | Gwinnett Daily Post

After watching the city council and mayor battle it out in public forums, officials in Snellville are planning to educate themselves on the rules to conducting meetings.

The Snellville Downtown Development Authority, Snellville Tourism and Trade and the Snellville Urban Redevelopment Agency all pitched in a small portions of their budget for an upcoming training class on parliamentary procedures. The event is scheduled for 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, March 29.

Buddy Scott, the chairman of the Downtown Development Authority, helped organize the event after watching the city government planning retreat end in 12 minutes this year. While some council members had hoped to have Scott mediate the meeting, the discussion broke down with the mayor failing to acknowledge motions from the council members and the council voting to “vacate the chair.”

Scott said he wanted “to give participants of Snellville’s official boards, committees and staff the opportunity to gain knowledge regarding the proper use of Robert’s Rules of Order as it relates to their role and rights in the running of their respective meetings.”
