Councilwoman Snead made a motion that Councilman Moffett serve as the presiding officer until one of the regular presiding officers is present. The motion was seconded by Councilman Tuck and received affirmative votes from the four members of Council who were present: Councilman Hobbs, Councilman Moffett, Councilwoman Snead, and Councilman Tuck.
