Got home too late to catch most of tonight’s City Commission meeting; tuned in channel 7 just in time to catch the last few minutes. Three things:
First, I saw someone who was upset at the proposal to move the recycling center. He quoted something from the Tribune to the effect of, “I don’t know anybody who doesn’t want to recycle; they just want it to be convenient.” Uh…actually, there are indeed some people who don’t want to recycle (I’m one of them).
Second, a nice send-off to retiring city planner Ben Rangel. I’m sure some people have quibbles with some of the projects that he spearheaded or worked on, but I have no doubt that he has done far more good than not for Great Falls. Congratulations on your retirement, Ben – thanks for working to make Great Falls the wonderful community that I love and call home.
Third, I noticed that Mary Jolley stated something towards the very end about someone being removed from the meeting – did I hear that right? Did anyone see what happened, or who it was?
UPDATE: GF Girl has a recap of the meeting, and notes that it was John Hubbard who was removed from the meeting.
