Hatzenbuhler: I goofed

Thursday, February 06, 2014 - Updated: 10:18 AM

Fourth Ward Alderwoman Diane Hatzenbuhler said she made a mistake during Tuesday night's Common Council meeting when she voted to table a resolution that would have granted her authority to sign a contract.

The resolution sought to grant Hatzenbuhler authority to sign a contract with golf course concessionaire Laura Elmendorf. The resolution was tabled in a 3-2 vote, while a similar resolution to contract with golf pro Joe Merendo was approved.

Hatzenbuhler said she thought she was voting to approve Elmendorf's contract during the vote to table.

"I think I made a mistake the first time thinking when you're tabling and when you're voting; uh, that was a mistake," Hatzenbuhler said. "I should have passed Laura's contract."

Had Hatzenbuhler voted the other way, the resolution would not have been tabled, and would have prompted a vote on Elmendorf's contract.

Hatzenbuhler expects to approve the contract at the next council meeting.
