CHURUBUSCO â€” Being an informed citizen is important for some Churubusco residents.
Several people regularly attend the townâ€™s council meeting twice a month.
A special meeting was called by town leaders to discuss an employee handbook, and those who faithfully attend the meetings were absent.
In spite of the townâ€™s diligence to report the session, the town residents were left uninformed about the special meeting.
At Tuesdayâ€™s regularly scheduled council meeting, public comment was allowed and the issue was voiced by those in attendance.
â€śHow are we supposed to know when these meetings are scheduled?â€ť asked a concerned citizen. â€śThis building isnâ€™t located where I can drive by all the time and look for a notice posted on the door.â€ť
Frank Kessler, Churubusco Town Council president, advised those who want to be kept updated on town meetings to refer to the newspaper.
â€śThe Churubusco News only comes out once a week,â€ť offered a resident. â€śIf this meeting falls between issues, how are we supposed to know?â€ť
