(B) require the Lord Mayor, or person presiding at a meeting of the council, to clearly indicate when they exercise a second or casting vote; and
(C) request that the requirement for the person presiding at City of Sydney to clearly indicate when they are exercising their casting vote be included in Council’s Code of Meeting Practice as a supplementary provision.
