Hello Friends,

Well it was another long night at City Council clocking in at just shy for 4.25 hours.   At that length it is hard to stay awake let alone allow for complete and thoughtful deliberation of each and every agenda item.  In the last review I had questioned the moving of certain agenda items to the end of the meeting in order to allow Councilman Orazem to be present for the vote.  I looked into this and found that it is legal and under the Mayor’s discretion.  All of those items went on to pass.

In general, as these meetings drag on, you can see the fatigue set in and items at the end of a long meeting are often quite rushed – everyone wants to go home, everyone is tired, everyone is hungry – late agenda items generally pass unanimously without a lot of discussion.

Hello friends,

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly.  After a day of reflection and several subsequent viewings of the Channel 12 recording, that is the only way I can think to accurately describe the August 9th, 2106, meeting of the Ames City Council.
