In July, Port Clinton City Council’s meeting format changed requiring citizens to sign in for questions and make statements before meetings begin. It is unclear why council would not want to hear what the people have to say about what they are doing. How can we comment if we haven’t heard what they have said yet?
Is this to stifle public input?
Council President Hartlaub said that’s what other cities do. Councilman Below said that’s what Oak Harbor, Huron, Vermilion, Perrysburg, Clyde and Woodville do.
What else do these cities do?
