City Council should just stay home…the city would never know the difference!!

I have to disagree that the city residents would not know the difference if the council stayed at home………think of all of the tax dollars that would not get wasted on items like land deals for parks…..

The council members should have to pass through the metal detector also. This will protect the all people at the meeting.

Hold it…I’m confused…didn’t Council and the Chief just make a big presentation on how crime is down? What is the security concerns all about…is it Saffo afraid his estranged wife will show up at meetings?

With all of the “interesting” land deals and other back door nonsense the members of this council have been involved in, it comes as no surprise that they would be concerned.
