  • Well.Do we have any clue to what the “ballot items” are ?
    We know that we (voters/ citizens) will have no input.

    • Duh there is a link in the article called “view the agenda”. Read before whining. I am assuming you have a computer and internet access. Agenda lists the ballot items you are clueless about and says “Public comment will be taken by telephone” so I get to have input. Sorry you don’t get to have input, I must be far more special than you. Poor widdle you. No agenda, no input. Sad.
