Recordings of City Meetings

The recordings for each Council or Commission are to be used as benchmarks, multi-educational tools for the citizens, elected City Council Members, appointees (Commissioners), government workers, staff, volunteers, department heads and administrators. Are discussions, decisions and actions by, for and of the citizens and residents — using the citizen/resident viewpoints? Are they really actively included, encouraged and valued? Are citizens’ concerns followed up by Commissioners, Council Members or City Hall? Subsequent recordings and review of packets and actions will show progress or not.

Beyond Robert’s Rules of Order . . . Why are citizens demanding transparency? Why are citizens requesting detailed codes of ethics, standards of behavior, conflicts of interest and opening meeting laws?
