Cedar Rapids City Council Discourages Citizen Input ~ Has meetings at Noon and 4:30

I have gotten dozens of complaints about the Cedar Rapids City Council meetings that occur every other Tuesday at Noon and 4:30 pm.

I would like to see the Council Meetings go back to the way they were before Ron Corbett became Mayor of Cedar Rapids.

(a) Public Comment first and then the meeting. Forcing people to sign up before the meeting, never knowing how long the meeting will be, discourages people from coming and saying anything at all.

(b) Consistent and convenient meeting time 5:30 pm.

Since the meetings have changed I have heard nothing but complaints and I am not impressed with the changes either. If there is something I’d like to talk to the council about I would like to go to the meeting and say what I have to say and leave! Sitting around for hours listening to the council go back and forth about whatever topic they are talking about is unproductive and time-consuming.


What do you think? Would you take part if the meeting time were 5:30 every other Tuesday? Click the red text below and vote in the poll!
