No public comment for Oglesby City Council meetings

Posted by wlpo on October 6, 2009

One of the most active city council audiences in the area was silenced.

          Oglesby Mayor Tony Torres didn’t allow any public comments during Monday night’s city council meeting after he and councilman Tom Porter got into a shouting match last month with a member of the audience.  Torres said he wouldn’t recognize anyone from the public to speak until he comes up with a protocol for public comment. 

          When he comes up with the plan, Torres says he’ll post it.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
