What a surprise! (no, not at all) x more meetings, look for more tomorrow and maybe even Wednesday.
This Side of Town
9 alders and the mayor are asking MATC to be more creative, close the west side campus, not downtown AND build the south side campus. Frankly, I don’t get the either/or nature of downtown and southside.
Input needed! Live in person or by email. Personally, I’d like to see someone who cares passionately about fair housing and discriminatory housing patterns.
Ok, for multiple reasons I was looking at this, and I’m actually looking for some minutes from a particular committee due to my request for a copy of a report discussed at a committee being denied. (More to come) But this is deeply disturbing. How do you find the minutes to these meetings? Of the 132 “council discussions” in legistar since 11/1/2005, only two of them have minutes. Of the meetings not in legistar this year, but in the “additional meetings” page on the clerks site, of the 70 meetings, only 5 have minutes.
Just two meetings that I can find . . . I’m sure there are more . . .
15 meetings . . . and we’ll be seeing the new supervisors in their new assignments and find out who will be chairing committees.
I don’t know what is wrong here, but there is no way that there are only 11 meetings this week. Watch for Mo’ Meetings, Mo’ Mo’ Meetings and probably Mo’ Freakin’ Meetings.
I’ve only been off the council for 7 years, but I find its culture of open whining about how hard it is to be on the council and its focus on itself instead of issues disturbing. But its culture of secrecy is even more concerning. Just look at the the charge of the committee that came up with the “government reform”, and their agendas, and how their minutes are written. None of the meetings had more than 72ish hours notice of the meetings – find out Friday at 4:30 for a Monday meeting for three of them, the other had 30 hours notice. This doesn’t appear to be a council that values the public in way shape or form. And I’m not sure what new leadership can do to fix it, given the ingrained culture of the current elected officials.
Plant sale and bike tour is next Saturday!
