Letter: Decorum in council chambers, please


Re: KTW’s story of Feb. 27 regarding Kamloops Coun. Dale Bass’s push for night council meetings (‘Will the sun set on Kamloops council meetings?’):

Thanks to Bass for putting forward the idea of having evening public meetings for council.

Here is a suggestion, especially for such things as zoning hearings at which a city staffer or the spouse of a city staffer is the applicant.

Please, please, please don’t allow any voting member to have a spouse and offspring come into council chambers and meet the applicant before the public meeting begins.

Not only would this be in poor taste, but it would also be extremely insulting to members of the public who might witness such a thing taking place.
