It looks as if the City Commission is considering limiting citizens to three minutes of “open” comments at Commission meetings. I don’t have a problem with it – as Mayor Stebbins notes, you should be able to get your point across in three minutes. In addition, folks can always communicate with the Commission via mail (snail or e), or meet with Commissioners outside of the meetings. What do you think? Should comments be limited – and if so, what’s reasonable? Or should there be no limit?
