Ludington City Council Meeting April 24, 2017: Open Dialog

The April 24, 2017 Ludington City Council meeting lasted for two hours, but will be remembered for a terse couple of minutes that happened between two councilors about the city policy regarding when to involve the public in city decision making. The city's controlling policy through the last dozen or so years has been to introduce their ideas the Friday or Saturday before a Monday meeting where it is either passed as a resolution or given the first reading mandated by the charter for…See More

"Very good analysis X. And like you stated, who are the 2 employees for Parks that get over $100K per year and what is it they do that deserves that kind of pay? What kind of equipment rentals costs $75K per year? Water utilities at $31K per year?…"
