I heard from a Prairie Ridge resident tonight that Mayor Sager told him that he could go to City Hall and listen to tapes from the City Council meeting on September 2.
That was a really good meeting, where Prairie Ridge residents spoke emphatically and factually about problems in their neighborhood. It's nice to learn that the tape of the meeting is available for public listening.
This contradicts, of course, information given to me previously that the tapes of City Council meetings are the property of the City Clerk and are used only for the preparation of the City Council meeting "Minutes". The tapes are not "transcribed"; i.e., Minutes are not verbatim reporting of meeting issues.
Has the City decided to preserve the tapes of meetings?
