Back scratching

Our city council has told us that they only plan to meet every other week this year.

They met last week and are also met  this week on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.

There is one item on the agenda.  It is the second reading of a proposed ordinance that would “allow for temporary places of assembly on undeveloped lots and in the ranch and farm zoning district”.

This is being hurried through so that the El Paso Balloon Fest can be held Memorial Day weekend at a ranch in northeast El Paso.

I doubt that many of us have a problem with the event being held.

It is remarkable how regular citizens have to wait days, weeks, and months before the city allows a permit or some other normal action to go through.

In this case council is going to convene to make an exception.  It probably helps that the organization making the request is a local media outlet.  Maybe this is part of why our local media gives the city a pass so often.

We deserve better

    Hot air is one thing city council knows a lot about. If only city council would just float away.


  2. This is one event that has been moved more times than most of us change our socks. Remember when it was held out at Shadow Moutain Shadow Lake?
