As most of us know, consent agenda items are almost always approved unless an item is "pulled" by a council member for discussion.
We can only hope this occurs with item "S" tonight.
Mayor Loomis can't accept "no" for an answer, and with the resignation of Salette Latas, he is once again trying to fund the likes of TREO & MTCVB with OUR bed tax revenue.
After Salette's resignation, Loomis saw fit to revise the consent agenda by adding item "S". (See left column of blog for details.)
S. * Resolution No. (R)10-23 Amending Policy Guidelines and Procedures for the funding of community agencies.
What does this mean?
It means that our bed tax money that is in reserve funds will be used to give to the aforementioned outside agencies.
The council already said "no" to these earmarks.
Let's see how this vote goes tonight---if in fact some council member thinks enough about the citizens to "pull it" for discussion.
If you don't think the upcoming election is important, think again.
Mike Zinkin & Matt Rabb are against these earmarks. Period!
