The Tattler has now been made aware that because The Mountain Views News failed to run the properly authorized City of Sierra Madre Public Notice advertising for the upcoming Public Hearing on the water related building moratorium question over the weekend, this vital matter, originally scheduled for July 22nd, will not happen on that date.
A 10 days notice for a Public Hearing of this kind must by law be published in an adjudicated paper before any such meeting can take place. By "losing" this ad the MVN has confiscated the public's right to a hearing on the date originally scheduled.
The two August City Council meeting dates were recently shined off so that Councilmembers could take their summer vacations undisturbed by the cares and affairs of Sierra Madre. This extension has to be in place before August 22nd, and with no meetings scheduled until September this matter is now in some doubt.
A special meeting would need to be held, if possible. So far none has been scheduled.
I will update this post as more news becomes available.
