Recently one of our city council meetings couldn't convene because of our 8 aldermen, only 3 showed up.
Those absent were;
Ed Lotz
Jeff Johnson
Carl Ankenbrand
Bill Mcelhaney
Nancy Stipp
Those present were;
Bill Goodwine
Susan Comstock
Brandon Hamilton
The mayor also was present.
Here's my question to you all;
Should our aldermen, who receive free water, pay stipends and other perks be required by law to attend at least a certain amount of the meetings to keep their positions but also their perks?

It definitely does not look well on the City Council.

I don't think anyone working for any city or village should be able to get any services free.

Apparently there was a requirement in place that used to require minimum attendance and if they missed a certain number then the mayor would have the power to sanction them. Can we bring that back?

I know if so many of me and my coworkers didn't show up they couldn't even open up that day, we'd be out on our a**.

Why we got so many alderpeople anyway? There's four areas needing representation...why not just have one per area and then save the money on the freebies and pay?

because then they wouldn't all get paid from your taxes.
