Decorum At Council Meetings Improvement

Last night’s council meeting was shorter, there were less speeches, less pettiness, and less personal anecdotes – worth a few gold stars!

The passing of the gavel just to pose a question seems unnecessary. And, when a council member requests a report, administration should comply, which is their job – to implement council’s decisions. It is not up to administration to decide when, why or if council should be provided with documents.

Likewise, council should not be concerned with how much work is involved in preparing reports. Council needs fully researched reports, both pros and cons, to decide what’s in the best interests of the community. Administration is a-political.
