RAWLINS — The mayor of Saratoga is promising to give members of the public a chance to speak during town council meetings.
Mayor John Zeiger addressed the issue at Tuesday night’s meeting. The public comment portion of the council’s agenda was canceled at the previous meeting prompting complaints.
Zeiger suggested moving the comment period to the end of the meeting so people would be able to comment on things that happened during the meeting.
Rosemary Erickson is one person who has been disappointed with the communication and discussion at council meetings. She’s still skeptical about the council being transparent but is glad that the public will have a chance to ask questions.
