Council members abstain from vote on abstaining

Submitted By AP Wire Service

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP), May 23- Three members of a Michigan city council have abstained from voting on a measure that would have prevented them from abstaining on future votes.

AnnArbor.com reports (http://bit.ly/13JeOBH ) that Ypsilanti City Council member Pete Murdock proposed a resolution Tuesday that would have required council members to only vote ``yes'' or ``no'' on each issue unless they had a financial or professional conflict.

Mayor Paul Schreiber and council members Susan Moeller and Brian Robb abstained from the vote to show their disapproval of the resolution.

The resolution failed, with Murdock and another City Council member voting ``yes'' while two other council members voted ``no.''
