    Given the fact that because of low sales tax revenues expected, many city employees livelihoods have been affected by recent layoffs, I wonder just how important some of the high dollar agenda items are or could they be postponed for a while?

    The live feed or transmission ended before the meeting. All items had not been voted on. Technically, it was not legal since public did not witness entire meeting. Where were your IT gurus?
