This was not a City of Sydney full Council meeting. It was a meeting of one of Council's committees, which makes recommendations to the full Council meeting - the full Council meets next Monday night.
Binding resolutions for action can only be made at full Council meetings.
Committee meetings are a chance for Councillors to debate reports - Councillors can also debate reports at full Council meetings.
Next Monday is a full Council meeting and I will be attending and chairing that meeting.
The dates for the 2011 Council and committee meetings were set last year, well before the new dates for Parliament were set by the new Premier.
I attended other committee meetings later in the evening.
