Let me see if I have the big picture. The Big Flag Committee has been approved and members appointed by City Council. And as the article states:
"... becoming part of government also means working under Sunshine Laws, holding public meetings and creating transparency in all financial and in-kind donations."
Now by contrast, the City Council, by request of Dr. Recker, will present a motion to disolve the Utilities Advisory Committee.
And now I ask why would a Councillor make such a recommendation? A committee for flag raising comes to life while a citizens watchdog for utility concerns is to be nixed?
Is it to nix transparency, citizen involvement and impact? Oh please help me understand! And please do not provide the pat answer that there are not enough members for a quorum, since, I believe members need to be appointed by Council.
Is it time to start the process of reviewing council motion records and voting history. Not going to happen if you maintain the current city management of public records. Because on this island public voting records are not available public consumption.
