TDA headline wrong on public speech limits

It was very disappointing to open The Daily Advance on Sunday morning and read the following front-page headline: "City cuts public comment time limit."

As your story points out, that idea, while discussed at the recent council meeting, was not approved.

Jon Hawley is a skilled reporter who attends every council meeting. Doubtful he wrote this sloppy, incorrect headline. Please report the workings of our city council accurately. Thank you.

Edi­tor’s note: The au­thor is cor­rect. The head­line over the story he men­tions was in­cor­rect. City Coun­cil voted 6-2 not to adopt rules lim­it­ing speak­ing time for the pub­lic at coun­cil meet­ings. Councilors decided in­stead to re­visit the is­sue at their re­treat next month.
