Resolution Authorizing The Mayor To Permit Use By The Clerk Of Council of The Mayor's Facsimile Signature On Adopted Ordinances And Resolutions Of The Hampton City Council

 

WHEREAS, Section 2-85 of the Hampton City Code provides, in pertinent part, that [a]ll ordinances of the city council shall be signed by the mayor and the clerk of the council in order to become the official record of council action;

WHEREAS, the courts, city administrators, Hampton residents and the general public reasonably rely on timely distribution of the official record of council actions in order to implement city laws, initiatives, and policies as well as to take necessary steps in the advancement of various matters requiring evidence of official council action;

WHEREAS, council recognizes that various demands and obligations from time to time render the mayor unavailable to execute ordinances and resolutions immediately after adoption, thereby delaying the distribution of the official records of council action; and

WHEREAS, council further recognizes that authorized use by the clerk of council of a facsimile of the mayors signature on ordinances and resolutions duly and properly adopted by the city council will expedite the distribution of official records of council actions, contributing to greater efficiency for all affected parties.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia that the mayor and the clerk of council shall and are hereby authorized to acquire or create a facsimile of the Mayors signature which may be used by the Clerk at the Mayors direction to affix the Mayors signature to adopted ordinances and resolutions in the interest of efficiency in the distribution of official documentation of council actions.

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on August 20, 2008.
