Have You Heard The News?

There is a special meeting tonight (April 5) at 6PM. Because it is a special meeting, it doesn’t require notice. We have checked the Town website and currently there is nothing indicating a meeting is taking place. Of note, the announcements were updated this morning with a notice of service disruption. But nothing yet about a special meeting.
We found out through Councillor Buck’s blog post “Further Thoughts“. Pity we didn’t find out through the Town.
Councillor Buck indicated that the problems many readers/watchers anticipated are coming true. It will be interesting to see how Council works their way through the mess that has been created.
If you have time, drop by and see the proceedings.

The agenda is up, but still nothing on the home page. So if you don’t know there is a meeting — so we guess you will never know until it’s over and published.
According to the agenda, the focus is to seek Council direction on “Council membership of the ad hoc negotiating working group and the provisions of the Terms of Reference relating thereto” which smells like a reconsideration.
Hopefully when they reconsider they will come up with a plan that makes sense and is not subject to the criticism we have heard thus far about inappropriate closed door and confidential meetings.
There is still time to get this situation back on track. Let’s hope it gets done tonight.
