People attending were furious at the brush-off and at the fact that for a second week they weren’t allowed to express their concerns. I’m sure that the council will say that there are rules of order, etc. etc., a fact which no one disputes. There comes a time, however, when rules need to be thrown out the door and the electors acknowledged.
The council has done itself a great disservice by ignoring the people to this point. The mayor and council seem determined to wait for the November 17th meeting to allow anyone to say anything at all, I suppose in an effort to minimize the fallout.
What they are doing is making sure that it is infinitely worse. What in the world are they thinking?
- They need to see that we wont be quiet while they consider making a decision that could so adversely affect our collective safety..
