Peru Pages: Distractions from the real business of the City

Peru Pages: Distractions from the real business of the City

A very well written and important comment by Brian Foster. I have watched the Princeton council mtgs videocast on the web and they show how Princeton gets things done in a no nonsense manner.

I am also very much in favor of requiring committees or commissions that make decisions be required to come with a representative and present it to the council with the whys and why nots.
In particular commissions who are allotted a budget and seem to spend it as they wish. Their president should present verbally topics and expenditures they are considering. Also our Director of Parks should be informing the council and the public of proposed projects, programs and finances that will be needed.

All seem like common sense suggestions to inform us how our tax dollars are being spent. What do you think?

Perhaps also a comment as to why no closed sessions have been released and at least parts of them, to the public. It has been almost 2 years since any have been posted on the Peru web site.
