hey who. The answer required checking a yes or no circle. It did not require an explanation. So read the directions before criticizing. Thank you.

Hey hadenough, you didn't answer the question, but then we all know what your answer would be don't we...?
After having been to any number of "board" meetings I fantasized, that were I king, I'd mandate that a print of Rockwell's "Freedom of Speech" hang in every public meeting room; and before the meeting begins all the politicians would be required to stand silently before it for one minute that they might contemplate its meaning.
but if you have a board that doesn't get along at all, how is anything to get done let alone wth public input that they refuse to acknowledge. So things get done stinkidly behind everybody's knowledge!!!
Council meeting are a Phil says a joke. Decisions are made prior to the vote. Now this is illegal to have I believe three or more council people meeting in private. Then there are those council persons who will do what ever the mayor says. This was proven numerous time under the previous administration. H**l one councilman had a rubber stamp made reading AYE. What might help is for every ward to vote for their own representative instead of the entire city. But knowing the political machine this will never happen. It should. Each state has districts that vote for their representative. Why can't Dunkirk?

yes, then they threw me out
After trying to call a person whose job it was to keep streets clean, I took photos of the problem to a neighborhood meeting. I took copies of the photos to pass to those who could do something. I told them there was no way I was calling the man in charge again. I also told them they could see it for themselves since the mess was across the street from where the meeting was being held, what luck. I promise the debri was gone the next morning. So they do listen, take photos!
Oh Phil, I disagree. At least in the Village Fredonia I know that the public input has in many cases has had a direct impact on the votes. Even when the votes do not go the way that I might have wanted them, still I know that my voice was heard and considered. I could give you several examples such as farmer's market, complete streets, and even Occupy Fredonia.

Yes - but it is a waste of time. Decisions are made long before the public meeting and officials could care less what the public thinks. If you want to know what is wrong with Dunkirk you could ask any person on the streets and they will tell you. City leaders are simply concerned with maintaining the payroll and feeding the unions.
