From the “ordinance” being adopted tonight by a 4-1 council vote:
Sorry, but BMC 2-3-112 does not “require” the voters to “ratify” a previous council adoption of another “ordinance” that pertains to “if the Council approves” a replacement terminal project.
We challenge the city attorney to show us this language in the original Measure B ordinance. It doesn’t exist.
Quite the opposite applies — there is no place in Measure B for the council to approve anything previous to the community vote.
Hate to break it to the CA, but Measure B does not call for a referendum on a previous council action. Nowhere is that language used in either the ordinance or the original ballot statement. Barlow doesn’t use it either.
