Charter Revision Committee: Outta Sight!
This is getting annoying, especially for SDM who has to continue to write about how the upcoming April 9 Charter Revision Commission meeting might as well be held in a cave in Afghanistan. Outta Sight, In the Dark, Under the Radar, blah, blah, blah… How many variations are there?
If you go to the village website and click on Charter Revision Committee, you will find that the last minutes available are from October 24, 2011 – last year! For crying out loud, tax day is almost here and all we know about the committee comes from last year’s meetings!
Now contrast Palmetto Bay with Pinecrest, the model before which village forefathers genuflected. Go to Pinecrest’s websit and search for “charter commission” you end up on this page, where you will find a link to the agenda. They don’t have minutes yet, probably because April 3, 2012 was the first meeting. If Pinecrest can publish the agenda in advance, why can’t Palmetto Bay?
The minutes are so out of date, SDM must conclude the administration really doesn’t want the public to know what’s going on at the Charter Revision Committee. Who’s bidding is the committee doing anyway?
For all you Ron Williams defenders out there: why does your manager keep PB residents in the dark? Why operate under the radar? Why stay outta sight? Ughh…
