Lack of Real Communication

There is not really a good means of public communication with the City Council. Currently, the public can go to a City Council meeting and speak for three minutes, but they can not get answers to questions. The City Council refuses to respond to any questions put to them. Later, the City Council can respond to what you have said, but then you can not respond to their comments or make additional comments.

On specific matters, you can also speak for 3 minutes or so, but then after all the public has spoken, the City Council discusses the issue and if there is something that is said which needs correcting (such as the EVerify audit issue), the public can not raise this issue.

When the public complains about the lack of communication with the City Council, it was said that you can schedule time to talk to them. The problem with this is that it is not public, so others can not hear what you have to say.

What we, the public, needs is a means of giving feedback to the City in more than just 3 minute speeches. We need to be able to question the City Council and demand answers. Something like a town hall meeting in which there is REAL communication.
