Mike Curley (a member of the city Planning & Zoning Commission)
wanted to talk about a P&Z decision on the rezone of the courthouse area
during a period of public comment before the city council.
Despite the fact that the P&Z had already completed their
decision-making, Randy Fife ruled that Mike could not speak on that
subject. Fife claimed city policy and state law said that members of
city commissions lost their right to speak on those matters. Mike
responded that he knew the subject well (from the P&Z deliberations) and
since the matter was not returning to P&Z, he wanted to talk.
The only way Mike was finally able to talk was to resign from the
P&Z. Which he did that night.
As part of this meeting, Randy Fife will be explaining his position
on this issue, and has promised to cite the city policies and state laws
