I think it should be decided by the board whether or not a given
decision can be made by the council, if not, the board should make the
decision themselves (possibly with the council having an advisory
role), but if they decide to give the council the choice, they have to
go with the council's decision. Vetoing a decision after it's been
made means all the time taken making it is wasted and gets people's
backs up.
