At issue most pertinent to the City Council will be the recent 5-year contract afforded the Yonkers Board of Education Superintendent. Will the Board of Education Trustees’ approved contract need to gain support of the City Council’s passage of the budget? Where does Council President Mike Khader stand on issues… transparency… why are Yonkers City Council meetings not repeated on Channel 78 whereas everything is repeated. is that transparency? Should the Yonkers City Council be requested to extend or rescind term limits, where does he stand on the issue? We also ask if a referendum is a legal option or a concept that is being mentioned but is in reality a non-starter and the only legal pathway in 2018 is for a majority, and not even a super majority vote for passage? What is the fiscal impact, especially for each member serving a third term and beyond regarding the cost of their pension eligibility? We seek clarification of legal options and conduct.
