Transportation planning group may revise quorum criteria after 2nd meeting cancellation

Published: Thursday, July 10, 2014 at 01:07 PM.

It was the second meeting in a row in which no business could be conducted because of lack of members in attendance.

Washnock said her staff could certainly look into revising the number of members that constitute a quorum, but the measure would have to be approved by local TPOs, including the Okaloosa-Walton organization.

Wood suggested an alternate solution might be to increase the number of alternates who could be summoned if needed.

“We frequently have this problem in the summer,” Wood said.

Because of inability to conduct business, the TPO did not approve requesting a federal TIGER Planning Grant to perform a feasibility assessment and economic impact study supporting restoration of Gulf Coast passenger rail service between New Orleans and Jacksonville.
