The public hearing at the redevelopment commission meeting was to have been publicly announced - Did anyone see it in the newspapers? If you didn't (and if they didn't), they can't hold the hearing legally. Any help here? Anyone? John B. Kalb

Don't bother - someone at the City-County building called me to inform me that the notice was published on August 31 - haven't found it yet - but still looking. I don't understand whythese can't be posted on the city web as was planned - but then I guess it's as "secret" as they can make it, legally (or maybe that's another feature of Richards "Lean Government") John B.

(Hey, somebody at city government is watching what is posted here!)

I love conspiracies!

It is on the city's website. You just have to click on the calender. Click on Sept. 17 and there are the meetings for the day. No secret. I always figured that was what the calender was for.

Scott - Just great info. - Everybody, try this:
Go to www.cityoffortwayne.org
then go down to the September calender & click on the 17
Up comes a page with 4 categories,Red or "General"; Blue or "City Sponsored Events"; Green or "Mayorial Events"; and yellow or "City Events". Click on the yellow and up comes a list of city events starting with September 5, 2005 - THAT'S GREAT, WONDERFUL! So page way down to September 17, 2007 under "redevelopment commission meeting", click on it and it says, "The redevelopment commission regular meeting is in room 810, City County Building" which, in addition to being the wrong location, says NOTHING about any "public hearing" and lists no time for the meeting. Scott - you must be a mind-reader to get any useful information from this site!!! I repeat -"Hide all you can from the taxpaying public!!!" John B. Kalb

John, you must have been looking at the wrong view. If you click on "daily view" it clearly lists both the meeting and the public hearing.

John, John, John. Make sure you're doing something right before you come on here and blast someone for doing it wrong.

Scott said...

John,

When you go to cityoffortwayne.org you scroll down and see a calender. The calender will say September at the top. Click on 17. When that comes up you will see two events. One at 4:30, which is the redevlopement committee meeting. The second event is at 7:00 which is the PC Public Hearing. Next click on public hearing and it will give you the all the information, including the correct room.

So much for you conspiracy that it is not published. If you are wrong on something so simple, what else have you been wrong on?

Scott said...

Let me revise my remarks John. You missed the two events at the top. You just went and clicked on the city events button and completely missed the pertinent information above that. It helps to read the entire page before ranting.
