The Beacon Hill Civic Association is considering an amendment to its by-laws that would clarify who is eligible to vote at member meetings.
The amendment, which will be considered and voted on at the association’s annual meeting on May 21, would clarify that both spouses or domestic partners are entitled to vote if they hold a non-individual or family membership.
The proposed change comes after there was some confusion at the annual meeting regarding voting rights last year, according to the association.
If approved, the change would strike a provision from the bylaw’s that limits voting at member meetings to one vote per membership unit, whether an individual or a couple holds the membership.
The change would also add a section clarifying that both spouses or domestic partners have the right to vote if they hold a membership to the association.
More information about the bylaw change can be found online or at the association’s office at 74 Joy St.
