Rolla’s Fourth Ward lacked representation at the Rolla City Council meeting Tuesday night.
First Ward voters also had no say in the business conducted.
That’s because their elected representatives chose not to attend the meeting.
Missing were Ward One council representatives Rhonda Sue Myers and Monty Jordan.
There were also name plates by empty chairs for Don Morris and Louis Magdits, of Ward Four.
All business and discussion was carried on by Ward Two Councilmen Greg Sawyer and Steve Leonard, Ward Three Councilman Kelly Long and Councilwoman Susan Eudaly, Ward Five Councilmen Jim Williams and Brian Woolley, and Sixth Ward Councilmen Tony Bahr and Walt Bowe.
This was Myers’ third absence since her swearing-in April 15. Likewise, it was Morris’s third absence.
It was Jordan’s second absence since that same date. It was Magdits’s first.
