  • Civil discourse a pleasant surprise

    Karla Pomeroy|Mar 7, 2024

    I knew ahead of last Tuesday’s council meeting there would be a crowd, having received a bulk email about concerns over the proposed rate increases. I am always a bit nervous when there is a crowd at government meetings because you never know the atmosphere of the meeting, but I need not have worried about the Feb. 20 meeting, as the meeting was the epitome of great civil discourse. There was nearly standing room only, but there is not a lot of seating in the council chambers. Questions, comments from the audience were courteous, well thought o...
