May 30, 2007 The Public Is Invited (sort of) To a City Retreat at 8:00 AM Tomorrow

I was looking through the Tribune tonight and happened to see a rather interesting public notice in the classifieds.

The notice said that the City of Morristown is having a "retreat" at 8:00 am in the morning at Windswept.

My guess is that the retreat is at Windswept, the house, and not Windswept, the gated subdivision.

For people who are new to the area, people who don't know what or where Windswept is ...well, maybe they can ask somebody really early in the morning.

The City schedules a public retreat for 8:00 am in the morning. The county schedules public committee meetings at 11:30 am.

It looks like there's not really much interest in scheduling meetings for times when the public can actually attend and hear public discussions, recommendations, and decisions being made.

Schedule public meetings at a convenient time for the majority of people? What an old-fashioned, democratic idea!

Schedule public meetings at inconvenient times for the majority of people? What a modern, elitist idea!

Wonder if a taxpayer-provided breakfast will be served?
