***SPECIAL MEETING TUESDAY 22 MARCH***
Okay, we can relax a bit, no more freaking-out.
When we got wind of an “emergency” meeting and reading the codes governing the lack of notice necessary, it definitely put us in mind of trying so slip a vote in under the radar.
Semantics makes a big difference. One word changes the meaning completely.
A “special” meeting to give this item the time and attention it needs is definitely a good thing. Thank you, Debbie, for doing this.
Please attend this meeting. You know the opposition will be attending as well. So let’s fill the room.
Dear Council Members,
I am emailing in order to notify each of you that we will be calling a Special Meeting on Tuesday, March 22nd at 7:30 p.m. in order to reconsider the Granite High development in light of the Mayor’s veto.
The primary reasons for addressing the Granite High issue in a separate meeting are time management and depth of conversation. I would like to be able to have a focused conversation about the future of the Granite High property without having numerous other agenda items waiting to be heard. We already have a list of at least a dozen other items vying for our time at our work meeting and regular meeting on March 23rd. It will not be possible to address them all as is, let alone if we were to have Granite High on the agenda as well.
By holding a Special Meeting to discuss the Granite High issue, we will be much more able to give it the extra attention it deserves, without being concerned that it is bleeding into all the other items on our agenda.
The meeting we are calling is classified as a Special Meeting (not an Emergency Meeting) and it is an open meeting. The public are welcome to attend. It will be noticed up in the regular manner. Please feel free to spread the word and let me know if you have any questions.
