What an idiotic statement.
vocal local 1 April 17, 2014 at 10:03 AM
The law doesn't mandate public comment. However, there is legal procedure that must be followed byRead Morea board to change policy on public comment. Library board members don't have a clue as to this procedure thus the president did it for them illegally as she really doesn't know what is what either. Actually, public comment at all city events is a waste of one's time as the minutes from the record do not reflect citizen comment. The better way to assure one's comments go into the record is to submit comments in writing prior to the meetings. At least council meetings where the clerk will assure they become a part of the record. Over at the library the director might just disappear with them and not even alert the board members. It will be so much nicer once the state abolishes local government and the graft and other BS it represents.

So you are admitting you point is stupid? Whatever and by the way you can be sued for libel.
vocal local 1 April 17, 2014 at 10:13 AM
The point is not stupid. you may be as your writing reflects. The library board has/is violatingRead Morethe law in process of changing public comment. The members take an oath. Are they breaking the law in not following the letter of the law, YES, they are. Sue me for libel. Have at it but before you waste your money seeking legal assistance review the laws of libel.

I remember when the public was involved in decision making in this city. Bolendar and We EnergyRead Morecont racts plus the repeal of the Direct legislation mandating the city bring major spending issues to the residents via referendum ended all that. Now your lucky to see any speakers at council meetings. Where chambers used to be packed all you see are city workers and development firms in the audience. Citizen speakers are so rare Stevie forgets to even acknowledge public present. The meetings do not drag on for hours it's cut and dried usually all aye votes to present a united force. I remind all the city is currently re-evaluating residential properties to increase the levy as the mil rate is controlled by Madison. When your taxes double will you object and will you have voice? I think not.
