Email to the Mayor - Why No Public Comment?

I have just sent the following email to Mayor Jeff Meyers:


If you remember, last week I asked why there was no public comment at the Special Council Meeting that selected the individual to fill the open seat in Ward II.

You replied that it was your decision not to ask for public comment.

Subsequent to that, some folks have asked me why I didn’t ask the obvious follow up question. So, I will ask it now.

What was the basis for the decision not to ask for public comment, particularly when it comes to the choice of an individual who will represent members of the community at council?
