Somehow members of our city council have gotten the mistaken impression that they are not allowed to talk with people that are involved in litigation with the city.
Actually the ones that have restrictions on whom they may talk with are the attorneys involved in the case. Those attorneys may only deal with their opponents through the opponent’s attorneys.
The actual people involved are allowed to deal with each other as they please.
The very idea that anyone cannot speak with their elected representatives is absurd, but this is another way that city staff keeps council in the dark.
We deserve better
