The Sentinel is correct to criticize the council for not taking a vote.  However, the criticism did not go far enough. Every issue of substance that faces the council is discussed in back room meetings that are intended to skate by the open meeting law, just barely.  While these meetings are technically open to the public, there is no relatistic way for the public to find out what was said by whom in these meeting.  The city has the technology to record there discussions but choose not to.  The intent of the council is obviously to keep there discussions out of the public eye.  For example, the Airport issue.  The council had scheduled a regular meeting complete with minutes and recording for next Wednesday.  They could have added the Airport issue to the agenda as the only item of discussion.  Instead, they canceled the regular meeting and scheduled a back room meeting to discuss the Airport issue.
