Enough said, here we go again. It will be interesting to see how this meeting transpires, whether citizens will actually get an opportunity for public comment, and whether Tempe Council really gives a darn or if this is another part of their charade.
We know some citizens are throwing in the towel knowing Council has made up their minds. It was overheard at a social gathering that Council will leave the bike lanes as is due to the cost involved to remove the candlesticks. Hmmm…..if that is the case it will be ironic–Council doesn’t normally make fiscally sound decisions. Oh wait, there are some seats up for reelection next year……
Regardless, be part of the process. Send an email, speak at the microphone (don’t be afraid, Council will stare at you because they have to but they don’t bite), or post on the Councilmembers’ Facebook or Twitter accounts (if they haven’t blocked you). By staying involved Council is more likely to be transparent in the future. It appears Robin Arredondo-Savage might be getting that message.
Updated –meeting postponed until 9-7-17
