Call to Action! If you agree with the statement above please send an email or go and as a delegation.

Subject line for a Delegation: Request to be heard as a Delegation Agenda Item 11.20, COW-Wed Dec 4

Subject line for an Email: Addition to the Agenda, Item 11.20, COW-Wed Dec 4, 2019

Background

Many residents protested against the 9:30am meeting times because it does not allow for residents who work to attend.

The elimination of the COW meetings was unexpectedly amended in the original motion at the Nov 20th meeting. COW meetings are important to have an opportunity for council members and city staff to hash out the details and receive public input before coming to the final decisions at the council meetings.
