Four days after the hasty decision to actually have a public meeting, even though the meeting is at a time of day guaranteed to yield as little public participation as possible – “Fencepiration” is deemed more important than a pending tax increase. Ward 2 Councilman Moe Romeo determined his February 15th ward meeting required notifying his constituents through the use of the reverse 911 system.
