Subject: Attorney’s document
I hate to burden you for the proposed contract that the city attorney distributed on the dias last night, but please.
It is my feeling that distributing documents such as the finance manager and the attorney did last night put the public and the elected council at a disadvantage. While certainly we can all see and review it the next day by burdening your office and staff with additional work, than if it were published in timely manner with the agenda, as the mangers comments were.
I have urged council in the past to not take or allow discussion on documents unnecessarily distributed during the meeting by staff that were not included in the agenda. Most did campaign saying they wanted a more open and transparent government, it seems to have been forgotten.
Covert document presented to the Council at the last minute by City Attorney
