Coun. Peter Milczyn (Ward 5, Etobicoke-Lakeshore) is circulating a petition among councillors to call a meeting of council to deal with urgent items such as contract approvals.

A majority of councillors — 23 signatures — is required to force a meeting. Milczyn said yesterday he’s close to the quota.

While councillors are seeking a special council session, it would do little good because there are no staff to carry out council’s wishes, said Coun. Joe Mihevc.

“You can approve all the stop signs you want, but there’s no one there to actually create the stop sign and there’s no crew to go out and actually install that sign.”
