Wolfville is drafting a new public participation policy. It should be easy in a small town like Wolfville to allow a few concerned people to speak at every Council meeting, and not just at select meetings – in the afternoon yet. They can manage to let people be heard in bigger cities. Here is just one example, some highlights from a Tucson City Budget meeting.
It isn’t really surprising that some of the issues are the same, but at least these people could say their piece. Are they considered too negative, or are they considered to be residents who want the best for their community?
From the ToW website:
Members of the consultant group working on this plan, RAMP UP, will be available for questions and public input at Town Hall on Friday May 7, 2010 from 10am-12pm.
If you work forget it but you can make a written submission either by way of the website, by email to the Mayor and Council or by leaving a note at Town Hall.
