Flowery Branch City Council is holding its semimonthly meeting on Friday, instead of the usual Thursday, so that it can have enough members to hold a meeting.
The city charter requires three members and the mayor or mayor pro tem for a quorum.
The meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Friday at City Hall, 5517 Main St.
The council, which normally meets at 6 p.m. the first and third Thursday of the month, is struggling with having enough members, given vacancies in the Post 2 and Post 3 seats.
A March 6 special election is set to fill the Post 3 seat, formerly held by Kris Yardley. The council likely will vote Friday to give its final OK to a March 6 special election to fill Post 2, which was held by Chris Fetterman.
Also complicating the situation is Councilwoman Tara Richards' out-of-town training for a six-month deployment to Afghanistan. She said she could leave for deployment in late February or early March.
