45:10 Jamie Mathy reported Tari Renner was absent because of emergency dental work. Mboka conducted the meeting as mayor pro-tem. Maybe Tari will recover enough to prosecute more local businesses today that dared to ignore Pritzker. They must not be the “right fit”, kneeling and losing your business is required for that.
By far the longest discussion was on:
PSCRB was also the topic of the only Public Comment. The guy who spoke is uniformed about the purpose of this board. He evidently didn’t appreciate how the police treated him and he wanted them to fix it. He needs to read the City Code Chapter 35 Section 79. https://ecode360.com/34412045?highlight=pscrb&searchId=37095991742467101#34412045
This board was created to make sure proper policies were followed by the police, not to overrule the actions of the police. Excerpt:
Nothing herein shall entitle the PSCRB to compel any testimony or conduct a formal re-investigation. Rather, the PSCRB shall review the complaint and help ensure the Police Chief and/or Police Department followed proper protocols. The PSCRB may recommend certain policy changes based on the review to either the Police Chief or City Manager.
Hear him at 9:10.
Thanks to Jenn Carrillo 2 youths will be added to the Board with the power to vote. These kids could be 16 or 17 without the power to vote in elections, but on this Board they can.
Note: If the socialists win all the seats on the City Council they are running for 16 years olds will be able to vote in local elections. Next illegals will also be able to vote, after all they live here. (California playbook)
Actually they don’t need to win all the seats they are running for, 7 of the 9 members agreed to make them voting members. Only Kim Bray and Donna Boelen voted no. Think back to when you were a kid, at what age did adulthood and making better decisions kick in? I bet it was way past your teens or even early 20’s.
Nobody pulled extending Tim Gleason’s contract. It got extended to 2025 with no discussion. The actual meeting was less than an hour. An Executive Session was held after which is why the video appears longer.
