I like the idea of limiting the public comment to the agenda topics, with perhaps a long, monthly open forum. It's maddening as someone who volunteers as part of the system in place for citizens to bring forward and give comment on legislation, to hear, at great length and repetition, people's opinions about issues that are not (or very little) in the Council's power to do anything about. Meanwhile when someone comes down to speak to an issue actually on the agenda, that becomes challenging and intimidating because of the crowd of frequent fliers.
YES! YES! YES! This needs to be done.
The problem is most places don't take reservations.
Thanks for the Hillyard love! I´m always trying to get people to come up to the neighborhood to eat, the food´s awesome.One piece of constructive criticism, I would have when with "Hill-Yum" instead of "Hill-licious." It´s much easier to say. Thanks again.
It´s pretty weak to put down an entire neighborhood because you had some bad luck on a major thoroughfare that sees thousands upon thousands of vehicles every day. Don´t you think it´s a little more likely that some industrial truck bounced that out onto the road than we evil Hillyardites planted it here for you to run over.
If only from a literary stance, it would have been far superior to marvel at the incredibly odd and unlikely occurrence of your accident then to show what a judgmental, prejudicial jerk you are by blaming it on the neighborhood. In case you missed the memo, it stopped being cool to pick on Hillyard a couple of years ago.
