Under the city's charter, executive orders expire if the council does not approve them at its next meeting.
Typically the administration approaches a council member with legislation that ratifies an executive order.
Councilwoman Andrea Boone sponsored legislation allocating the $7 million. It is now subject to a committee hearing and won’t be considered by the full council until its next meeting on April 20.
But no other council member introduced ordinances or resolutions for the other five executive orders.
If they had, the proposal could have been subject to a committee hearing, and meanwhile, the order would not have been in effect.
Bottoms Spokesman Michael Smith confirmed on Tuesday that no one from the administration approached the council about introducing legislation related to the other five executive orders.
