As in the case for the last four years, as I outlined in my correspondence today, you have violated the city charter on numerous occasions and now you are misinterpreting and misunderstanding what the charter states. Pertaining to business on January 1, 2016 please note that the city council of Schenectady is holding their organizational meeting on January 1, 2016 which clearly shows you can do city business onJanuary 1.I trust that you will spend some time in the future studying the Troy city charter.Once again, good luck in your new endeavors.Carmella

The fact that Schenectady is having a meeting on Jan 1, is of no consequence or relation to what Troy does. I hope you understand we are a separate municipality. Additionally, having a council meeting, is separate from the daily operations of city government.
Final reminder, only the clerk can call or notice a meeting, not a member of the council, or the council secretary. And posting notices in city hall on the glass cases don't count either.
Really love the 'glass case' comment. Very funny. Also, high sarcasm marks for the out-going City Council President. Nice touch.
Not a good start for Mantello. She looks petty, stubborn and ill-informed. Unequipped to run a middle school class government meeting. Or, perfectly equipped, come to think about it.
If we were Mayor Madden we would certainly not want anything before the Council at Monday's meeting. Everything done at that meeting will be not just null, but void. Certainly voidable. We'd also shave the beard because we don't like facial hair. To Rutherford B. Hayes for us.
