Did you know ... that the North Canton City Council frequently passes routine ordinances as "emergencies"?

I do not believe that routine legislation should pass on an emergency with a suspension of the rules.

When legislation is passed on an emergency, it is read, voted on, and passed before anyone knows what took place.

When legislation is rushed through council in this manner, Council members to not have enough time to research the issues. Furthermore, residents are deprived of the opportunity to offer their opinions, and council members are deprived of the opportunity to hear residents' input.

Legislation City Council has passed or attempted to pass on emergency:

bullet J Group Economic Development Contract
bullet Curbside Leaf Recycling Program
bullet Dogwood Skateboard Park
bullet Wilbur Drive Traffic Signal
