Does Greensboro’s City Council think most of its citizens know more than they ought to?

If they can get you asking the wrong questions,


 they don't have to worry about answers.

Mayor to push speakers from the floor back


 


Greensboro Mayor Bill Knight said during a city council briefing today that at the council's next meeting on Jan. 19 he plans to begin scheduling speakers from the floor at a time near the end of the meeting.


 


…District 1 Councilwoman Dianne Bellamy-Small predicted the move will not go over well with citizens, noting that many of those who address council are elderly people who make their presentation and then go home.


 


"I think the message is going to be that you don't want to hear from them," she said.


 


"Some of the folks that are going to speak from the floor might have to wait for awhile, but unfortunately people who have business have to wait until 11 o'clock," Matheny said. "We've got to get back to doing the business of the city."
