Council could override veto of Women's Care Center zoning amendment

The South Bend Common Council will allow its members to make a motion to override Mayor Pete Buttigieg's veto of the zoning amendment for a property on Lincoln Way West during special business at the May 14 council meeting.

Council President Tim Scott issued a press release with information about the process of rescinding a veto.

For the council to consider overriding the veto, a member must make a motion and the motion must be seconded.

Time will be allocated during Special Business to consider any action.

For the council to override the veto, 2/3 of the council must vote in favor of the motion to override.

The council says because the ordinance is unchanged and the public discussion portion has passed, there will be no public input.

Council members will be given time to speak about the motion before the vote is taken.
