From Jim Tolbert:
Item 13.1, which would exempt the City from being required to meet the “dark sky” standards, appeared on the May 17, 2016 agenda. It was merely an introduction of the amendment to the lighting ordinance. The actual vote on the proposal is on the May 31, 2016 agenda – Item 27.1. I will raise objections to it and I will not vote for the amendment.
This particular amendment was just one of several updates to the Building and Construction codes. I was briefed about these updates without mention of specifics. Fortunately, because of the vigilance of Elpasospeak, I was made aware of the nature of this particular amendment.
Government works best when it is transparent and the public is not only informed but vocal. Thank you Elpasospeak.
