Set An Alarm For Monday: Appointments Comin’
The greatest television character of all-time is probably Omar, the gay, “Farmer in the Dell”-whistling, drug dealer-robbing, trenchcoat-wearing Robin Hood from The Wire. And when Omar’s comin’, you best get in check.
Anyway, that explains (poorly, I admit) my ambiguous headline.
At 7:30 a.m. Monday, the University Park City Council will meet in executive session to discuss the appointment of close to 150 residents to the 16 citizen committees. The city’s gotten about 250 applicants, according to Steve Mace, so the council’s got a decent amount of winnowing.
“ This is like shuffling a bunch of playing cards,” Mace said. “They’ve only got so many slots, and have to re-up most of these.”
The reason it’s in executive session, Mace said, is basically because of the quasi-judicial nature of the Board of Adjustment and Planning and Zoning. After the session, councilmembers may come back into public session to announce their decisions intentions to continue deliberation (thanks for the clarification, Mr. Mace), or they may not.
Roll the dice with me?
