It has come to my attention that at Tuesday, July 19th Council meeting that ALCOHOL sales were approved for the grill on a 4 to 1 vote.
Would you kindly answer these questions:
Is the above true?
Did this action take place under Agenda item #15 which reads, “Review/Action to Amend the Cedar Hills Grill Concession Agreement”? (see copy below)
Did you write up the July 19th Council agenda doc? If not, who did please?
Were you aware of the community are deeply concerned about alcohol at the golf course and grill? (Please see May 2001 flyer, the third item “ALCOHOL AND SUNDAY OPERATION" in the attached flyer used by then Mayor Sears and Council to persuade the community to support the push to buy the golf course.)
If you were aware of public interest on this issue, why would the main subject — ALCOHOL — not be included in the Agenda item #15 subject description?
Was this omission of the subject of “Alcohol” done to hide or deceive the public regarding this important community issue?
Is it true that just prior item #15 was discussed by the Council, you left? And returned right after the vote?
Can you understand why so many of us have so little trust in our local government with it’s constant drip, drip, drip of evolving deceit and dishonesty?
Would you like to see this action repaired with a fully informed Public?
Would you like to be held personally responsible for any golf course / clubhouse alcohol related deaths?
Will you commit to do all in your power to stop this action until a proper Public notification can be made, public comment taken and a new vote Council taken please?
If so, thank you. If not, why not, please?
Please respond briefly and directly, at your earliest convenience. The CC’d Council members may also add their answers by separate email if desired.
