City legislative bodies can only take action if a quorum exists, which in Kentucky means that a majority of its members are present. If a quorum has not been met, then a city council or commission meeting cannot officially take place. Therefore, no official actions can be taken, such as passing ordinances, orders, or resolutions. Because the mayor is not considered a member of the legislative body in cities with a mayor-council form of government, the mayor is only counted for the purposes of a quorum in cities with the commission or city manager form of government.
