Looks like it has begun. The two new members of the Richmond City Commission have begun an effort to exert influence on city operations.
When King’s turn came to speak, she said she wanted to make a motion to restore the start time of the city’s vehicle maintenance garage to 7 a.m. from 8 a.m. King said starting the day earlier would increase productivity and be more convenient for the police department to leave its vehicles at the end of the night shift. Starting earlier also would be more likely to allow work that requires ordering of parts to be finished the same day, she said.“We probably just need to (discuss this) in a work session instead of making a motion,” the mayor told King. She said the issue already had been discussed for about two hours in a work session. Barnes then said operational decisions such as work schedules were left to the city manager under then commission/city manager form of government, and asked Howard if he wanted to address the issue.

Thanks Mr. Barnes for acknowledging that Richmond is a City Manager form of government but please remember that in the future!

Looks like it is going to be a long two years folks! One of these days we may not be influenced by a Luxon or Durham.... Do not let the last name of Laura King fool you a snake is a snake no matter what its name is!
