Perhaps its time for the RTM to meet monthly all year long?

I would, too, with an agenda like that.
The very fact that it's so stacked cries out for an end to the "summer break."
Legislative deliberation is something I support. Yet, it can safely be argued that this agenda can hardly be conducive to adequate consideration.

Some people think the RTM is too big. In fact, the time has come to go all the way and make it even bigger: revert to a full TM (town meeting) with every resident able to participate in person or, if desired, via the internet.
The time has come for Ross Perot's electronic town hall meeting concept.

Nah. I like it the way it is. A good mix of people from every neighborhood. Debate and deliberation will always serve us better in the long run than rubber stamping.

I'm sure you don't realize it, but the RTM is too much of a rubber stamp. Going to a TM would result in a lot more rejections. The union contracts, for one, would run into major trouble.
(I agree, a major appeal of the RTM is the interesting mix of people.)

I'm not ready to go so far as to say it's a "rubber stamp." I would agree that it has not been as critical or analytical as it could/should have been.
I would also agree that there has been a lot of dead wood among the members for far too long, but that seems to have been changing for the better. Let's face it, the RTM more or less reflects the entire community, for better or worse.
