I have been complaining about this situation for years but our Town leadership treats citizens as second class citizens. What I mean is they do not care if the Public hear what is going on during these Public meetings. I listen to Councilors complain that not many citizens take an interest in what is going on in town. Well, when you are treated in this manner it is hard to maintain an interest when you cannot hear and no one cares. Also, I have attended numerous briefing during my forty years working for the government and I never sat through a briefing that I could not hear everything said and I always had a handout in which to follow along. At the end of classified briefings, the handouts were gathers back up and destroyed.
