Council considering canceling next week’s meeting
Thursday, May 4, 2017 by Jack Craver
Some City Council members are pushing to cancel the Council meeting scheduled for May 11. During a Tuesday work session some Council members argued that the agenda for the May 11 meeting is so short that the city would be better-served if Council members took that day to attend to other important business. Council could then address whatever was planned for the 11th during its next scheduled meeting on May 18. Council members Jimmy Flannigan and Alison Alter both noted that they would like more time to engage with constituents and stakeholders on CodeNEXT. Council Member Ann Kitchen said she would like the meeting to proceed, saying that she appreciated short meetings. Mayor Steve Adler hasn’t stated an opinion; on Wednesday afternoon he posted a message to the City Council Message Board asking for feedback from his colleagues. Whether or not they go forward with the meeting, he said, there will be a work session on May 9.
