Mayor does not vote in case of P&Z tie

What happens if City Council has tie vote on approving/rejecting
a Planning & Zoning (P&Z) recommendation?

If there is a tie on the City Council vote on accepting or denying a Planning & Zoning recommendation, the matter is not decided by the Mayor, as in all other matters before the Council.

Carolyn Edwards, Columbia City Clerk and secretary of the Planning & Zoning Board said the the guidance is KRS 100.211, which says that a majority is required to override a decision of the Planning and Zoning Commission.

Should the council split 3-3 or 2-2, the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission would prevail, she said.
