The DeKalb City Council voted 5-2 (with Ward 1 Ald. Carolyn Morris and Ward 5 Ald. Scott McAdams voting no) to approve the amended ordinance relating to the City Clerk's office on first reading only. A second reading approval would require 6 yes votes and Ward 3 Ald. Tracy Smith was absent. The matter will come for a final vote the first council meeting in October.
