As a member of this community, I am concerned by the precedence that this sets for the running of business. Wasn't it not too long ago that the Sunshine Mill was penalized by the council for waiting until the last minute to bring up issues regarding payments? How is this different? A lesson I have tried to teach my children is that if they wait until the last minute to get projects/homework done, then don't expect for other people to jump through the hoops that they have laid out. I suppose that lesson needs to be given as a refresher course to our city council.

As an aside, how does the the honorable Mayor not at the very least express for the record when presenting his request that he is on the board at the benefiting non-profit? Even though every knows it already, it should be a formality that is observed. Personally speaking, in any case where there is even the possibility of the appearance of a conflict of interest where public funds are coming from, the Mayor or any of the elected council should recuse themselves. What should have happened is that some else from the Civic should have taken the time to present this issue...not to mention it should have been properly vetted by being added to the agenda prior to the meeting. What was described in this editorial is not a minor deal and lends weight to the argument that unethical, or at the very least untoward, behaviors are being practiced by our city government.
