A DONATION to Orange community broadcasters will be withheld until Orange City Council staff seek legal advice on whether a motion to cancel can be filed to overturn the decision to grant it. The council had accepted the $ 2,500 grant at its Nov. 2 meeting as part of its small donation program, but Cr Kevin Duffy, the only councilor to vote against the granting of the donation, called for a motion to cancellation at the Tuesday evening meeting. Money was requested for the purchase of equipment. Cr Duffy (pictured right) was informed by Board CEO David Waddell that it was too late to table such a motion, which Cr Duffy disputed. Cr Duffy argued that while he agreed that on matters of planning the 12 o’clock deadline the next day it was correct, in other matters that had not been processed, he believed that a motion to cancel could be proposed. Cr Duffy said he was “extremely unhappy” with the November 2 decision. At that meeting, Cr Duffy asked how much the rental of the property used by the OCB would be worth per week, which a member of the board executive said would be around $ 500 per week. the week. “I was the only one who voted against it and since then it has been given a lot more air,” Cr Duffy said at Tuesday night’s meeting. Cr Duffy asked Board staff for legal advice on whether a motion to quash could be made. Tuesday night’s meeting, which was the last in the current board’s term, agreed to withhold the donation pending legal advice on a motion to cancel.
