Public hearing anarchy
Thursday, March 7, 2019 by Elizabeth Pagano
In the past, City Council public hearings have held a special place for all of us, and that place was any time past 4 p.m. This is no longer the case. As of today, public hearings can take place at any time during the regular City Council meeting.
