WP Mayor sets "procedures" to citizen comments

April 29, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Ken Hawkins had a lot to say Monday.

In the late afternoon the Willow Park Mayor addressed his decision to remove citizen comments from the agenda of city council meetings, but by Monday evening had come up with a solution to give what he called the correct procedure.

For the past two months, March and April, Hawkins used his mayoral power to remove the citizen comment portion of the city council agenda. The reason, he said, was because citizens were not addressing current agenda items.
