Newsletter about the City Council meeting of November 4, 2014

I began video recording the City Council in 2012, because of my desire that the City do it on their own as any modern 21st century community began doing long ago. I had people tell me that they couldn't make it to the meetings, but they would like to see what is going on. I was also told by some council members that my summaries did not truly reflect the record, so having a video/audio recording cannot be misinterpreted.

So below is the City Council meeting. With each agenda item, you can click on the links and it will take you to that specific point in the meeting. You can always drag the marker on the video display to the point in the broadcast that you are interested in seeing.

Agenda about the City Council meeting of November 4, 2014


Hound Notes: I didn't put out Thoughts because the meeting only lasted a little more than 15 minutes. As I had thought in my Agenda notes. The Council wanted to get to their party and understandably so. 

With a 15 minute meeting, you will understand that there wasn't much to comment on. A public hearing on issues of vagrancy was postponed to a later time uncertain date. 

I will also be putting out something that will take a few days and plan to get back to putting out Economic Stories of Relevance.
