Wayne City Council Meeting

Last week I happened to be at the Wayne Main Street office right before a city council meeting.  Our WMS office is in the Wayne Activity and Banquet Center.  The City Council holds their meeting in the large room there.  On my list of new things to do in 2014 was to attend a city council meeting.  I had intended to go to a Westland one since that is the city I live in, but I figured Wayne would be just as educational.  I found a place to sit and grabbed an agenda to see what would be covered that night.

There was a crowd at this meeting.  I thought “wow, so many people attend the Wayne meetings!”  Apparently, that isn’t so.  Some young women were being recognized for being Wayne-Westland Distinguished Young Women.  Some were family members and friends to see the swearing in of the new Police Chief.  Some were there with the Sisters who were buying a piece of property the city owned next to their school for $1.  Once those people cleared out, it was down to the size of the audience I see when I happen to catch the Westland council meetings on cable TV.

The meeting didn’t take long.  The council members seemed friendly.  Nothing got too heated.  All in all, a pleasant experience.  It’s a good way to learn more about your community and what is happening.

Tell me: have you ever been to a city council meeting?  If so, are you a regular attendee?
