The council would appoint the alderman lisaion instead of the mayor, and the mayor would only be allowed to make two of the seven appointments

The hearing for the second ordinance is scheduled at 6:30 p.m., and is a request for the placement of stop signs on Locust Avenue at the intersection of Crescent Avenue in both directions.

The third ordinance being discussed tonight at 6:35 p.m. is the request that trucks heavier than 13 tons will be excluded on Northampton Road.

The council will meet with Amsterdam's Industrial Development Agency at 6:00 p.m. and the Transportation Commission at 6:40 p.m.
