2012 CITY COUNCIL Agendas and Meeting Minutes

As Complicated and Regulated as Government is getting, we need Council People that have the wisdom and intellect enough to understand their roll.

AND THE DESIRE AND DRIVE ENOUGH TO READ THE STUFF IN THEIR AGENDA PACKETS.AND THE READING AND COMPREHENSIONS SKILLS TO INTERPRET WHAT IS IN THEIR AGENDA PACKETS….. AND THE ABILITY TO REMEMBER WHAT THEY VOTED ON….. AND WHY THEY VOTED THAT WAY IN THE FIRST PLACE.

ONE LAST THING, EXCEPT FOR SOME FORMATTING CHANGES HERE AND THERE. I’LL BE POSTING THE MINUTES JUST AS I HAVE RECEIVED THEM. TYPOS, BLEMISHES AND ALL… HOWEVER, IF YOU HAPPEN TO SEE SOMETHING THAT JUST LOOKS PLAIN “WEIRD” LIKE “HAPPY FACES” OR OTHER STRANGE SYMBOLS WHERE THEY OBVIOUSLY DON’T BELONG, ITS THE BLOGGING SOFTWARE. SOMETIMES IT JUST HAS A “HICCUP” EVERY NOW AND THEN. LET ME KNOW AND I’LL FIX IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
