Consent Agenda Shouldn't be a Rubber Stamp Agenda

MeBWmediaThere was a stunning display of unity amongst our seven members of council on Wednesday, as they voted on blocks of resolutions without discussion or debate.

 

Along with the new procedural bylaw adopted by council at their inaugural meeting on December 6th comes a new method of conducting council meetings.

 

The changes in how our council meetings are conducted are designed to make meetings more efficient, and to move along more quickly. This is accomplished by moving to what is called a “consent agenda.”

Don't Let The New Procedural Bylaw Exclude You

MeBWmediaThe one bit of actual business that will take place at the inauguration ceremony for the new Meaford council on Monday December 6th at Meaford Hall will be the adoption of a new procedural bylaw.

 

If our new council is determined to re-gain the trust and support of the general public, then they might be wise to insist on holding off on passing this bylaw until some debate can be had about some of the details contained within it.
