|NEW PACKET POLICY|
EARLY PACKETS 2-3-16 LMS
During the City Council Roundtable discussion on February 2, Councilman Rob Jackson brought up the subject of not having enough lead time before being asked to make a decision.
His reference was to large amounts of information being presented in packets just as a meeting or workshop begins. He said it would be far more productive to be able to read the information beforehand.
The council decided that from now on when packets of information are involved, the subject will not be placed on the official agenda unless packets are received prior to the meeting.
The evening’s Public Comment period included Robert Dunlop expressing thanks and compliments to the Sacajawea Center for its well-groomed cross country ski trails. He said in his recent visit to the facility he saw people walking dogs, skiing and even riding wide tired bicycles along the pathways. Dunlop said it is a job well done.
Evalyn Bennett was glad to hear about the cross country opportunity and on a snow related topic she asked if it was possible to do some city work crew rotations that would allow for more snow removal on weekends. She also recommended the city contact Breanne Green for more information from the Whitewater Association as to what information the city will have an opportunity to address at the February 25 pre-permitting meeting of agencies.
Dave Gusky said he hopes the pre-permitting meeting is open to public input since he believes the general public should be included in any decision-making process.
