NORWALK, Conn. – The effort to keep Norwalk’s Common Council from devolving into the circus-like dysfunction that marked the last two years of the previous administration continues next week with a marathon meeting Saturday morning, Feb. 8.
The 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. goal-setting meeting in City Hall was the idea of Council President Doug Hempstead, Majority Leader Jerry Petrini said. All council members are invited to discuss what their priorities are and how their goals might be accomplished.
“Hopefully this is a way that all 15 of us can be on the same page and bring a better working together environment to the council, which has been absent from the previous council,” Petrini said in an email.
While the meeting is public, there will be no public participation, no opportunity to speak or ask questions, Petrini said.
“There will be plenty of other venues that will be held to get the public’s input,” Petrini said.
