Meeting (p)review

Getting back to West Covina’s council meeting last week, there were a few items of unfinished business last week. Because of the large number of residents there to talk about the parking permit ordinance, the other people in the audience didn’t get a chance to speak on the things they were there for.

Case in point:
the nearly half dozen tow truck representatives, who sat through hours of public testimony. And the council never got to their item, so those guys will have to come back again for another grueling council meeting. (I feel their pain) 

The council was expected to discuss the towing contract, and consider extending it another five years or take it out to bid. There is still two and a half years left on the existing contract.

Another item the council wasn’t able to get to was the budget review.

Both of those items are postponed until the next meeting.

Oh yeah, and the deputy city manager. The council held a closed session meeting on the agenda about it last meeting, and no decisions were made.

You know what else is occurring next meeting? The mayoral rotation. Let the bidding begin: Will this be the year that Councilman Roger Hernandez is selected mayor?

    Clearly not. They manufacture a controversy to keep him out of the rotation every year, and this year is no different.

    Mayor Roger?

    Lets see, Roger is asking for police protection during close sessions.

    Now, rotation for mayor is just around the corner.

    How interesting turn of events and the timing on all of this is just coincidental.

    I say just give Roger the darn bone and let him be Mayor.

    Then, if Mayor Roger screws up, the council has the pleasure to rotate again.
