The Town Council shall meet monthly, on the second Monday evening of each month, at 8:00 p.m. in the Town council chamber, except during the month of November in odd-numbered years, when the meeting will be held at the same time and place on the second Tuesday after the first Monday of the month, each such meeting being known as a regular meeting of the Town Council. Whenever such second Monday of the month shall fall upon a legal holiday, such meeting shall be held on the next succeeding day at the time and place provided in this section. Such regular meetings may be adjourned upon a vote of a majority of the members present, provided that such adjournment is not less than two calendar days thereafter, and notice in writing of such adjourned meeting shall be given by the Town Clerk to all members of the Town Council not present at the time of adjournment.
The presence of at least six members of the Town Council shall constitute a quorum to do business, but a smaller number may adjourn from time to time.
So long as the Town of Stratford remains a signatory to the Memorandum of Understanding for Economic Planning and Development in the Greater Bridgeport Economic Development Region, neither the Chairman of the Council, nor his designee, shall be empowered to take any action as a representative to the Metropolitan Planning Organization which has the effect of either committing the Town financially to any project under consideration by the Metropolitan Planning Organization or of approving the location within the Town of Stratford of any project under consideration by the Metropolitan Planning Organization, without the express authorization of a 2/3 majority of the whole of the Town Council. In any case, the matter may, upon the affirmative vote of a simple majority of the whole of the Council, be submitted to the electors of the Town as a referendum.
