Here is a nice opportunity for the whiners, the complainers, and the "TROLLS" to sign up and become a part of what it is they whine, complain, and "TROLL" about.

I went to the City website. There is no description of the library task force. Like what they are specifically going to study other than a broad statement about a new library or what it called a downtown civic center now. There is no list of questions the task force should focus on, and no schedule to make decisions. In business, there is always a schedule to make sure people stay focused. This is another obvious example of city government encouraging endless meetings for another plan which will either never be read, or will be used to justify whatever the government workers want. No wonder there is so much red tape and undecision.
