BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Lafayette is considering a plan that would allow its elected leaders to attend council meetings and vote on ordinances without stepping into the council chambers.
The Lafayette City Council is taking up a resolution Tuesday that would amend the council's handbook to allow such meetings.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, council members want to help elected officials with their busy schedules and demanding day jobs. It would also help them during family emergencies.
Opponents say it could be a valuable tool if it is not abused.
