Keyser, City Council changes Citizen Concerns to be First
In a complaint made at the last city council meeting in Keyser, WV July 11, 2012, Councilman Faulk addressed the issue, according to News-Tribune.
A snippet of the letter submitted to News-Tribune from Councilman Clint “Clinton” Faulk.
After a lengthy discussion by the Council members, we have decided to change the structure of the meeting and move the Citizens Comments portion to the “front of the line,” before we conduct “new business”.
Ralph Broadwater voiced his concerns of citizens’ concerns prior to this, also questioning the two-hundred fifty-thousand dollars spent at the beginning of the meeting.
“I don’t know why we have write down our names to speak, because we always get to the speak after the vote is over. We don’t get our concerns heard before you vote on things … and I think that should be changed,” said Broadwater to the Mayor.
