Southport Park resolution not on Parks agenda
The Southport Park resolution, which was expected to be on tonight’s Parks Commission agenda, did not appear. George Clark questioned Chairman Michael Orth on it. Orth’s response was that, as soon as he got a copy from Legal, it would be placed on the agenda, possibly at the next meeting.
After the meeting ended, Alderperson Anthony Kennedy gave Clark a copy of the latest resolution that was distributed at last Wednesday’s Common Council meeting. Clark asked why Kennedy had a copy and Orth didn’t. Kennedy said that this copy had his added amendments and changes. Orth said that it was for the Parks Commission to consider first. Kennedy said that he happened to disagree, but that “we need to work with it where it’s at.”
Orth did offer a few dates in relation to the SAA Group’s planning. September 26th, November 1st, and December 5th were three dates that were mentioned for future meetings.
Alderperson Keith Mathewson made a few comments that the voting at the Common Council meeting was “political.”
Orth said that the goal is to get a better resolution.
Clark stated that he was just trying to find out what was happening with the resolution. “I think the average citizen has the right to know what’s going on,” he said. Mathewson gave Clark his business card and told Clark to e-mail him. He would talk to him about the politics involved.
