The 2-hour study session on Service and Program Priorities that preceded the regular Park Board meeting, was not televised or taped; so there, unfortunately, is no public record of the proceedings. If you did not attend the meeting, you have no way of knowing what happened. And even the Commissioners can’t review the proceedings.

During the regular 5:00 p.m. Park Board meeting, the Commissioners voted to approve the Comprehensive Plan. Then Commissioner Bob Fine made a motion to approve the revised Citizen Participation Ordinance. But before the vote, Commissioner Walt Dziedzic moved to table it until the next meeting so that there would be time for the Commissioners to study the proposed Citizen Participation Ordinance that was recently submitted by four
citizens who had some serious concerns about the Park Board’s new revisions.

There was a voice vote in favor of Commissioner Dziedzic’s motion with the only dissenting vote by Commissioner Bob Fine. So this item will be before the Board at the November 7 meeting.
