On June 18, R-14-161 was introduced at a Council Meeting. Interestingly it was not printed as an agenda item made publicly available on our town website previous to the meeting, it was not attached on the meeting packet handouts left outside the meeting room for the public to read during the hour the Council was in closed session, instead it was placed on the table next to the public comment sign-in sheet – which many of those attending did not realize was supposed to be part of the agenda. R-14-161 was pushed through within 15 minutes of the start of the public session with no explanation or comment period.
We are a very small town, the amount of speakers we have is minimal, the council seems to have intent to limit *certain* people that they do not want to hear from. Four minutes seems fairer across the board if they do need to limit the speaking time
