Public Comment:

 

Tim Thibideau, Massachusetts Ave., “Last time I brought up issues about the Ethics Board.  The Council is the selection committee.  I have put together a list of things that have happened whether intentionally or unintentionally that should be addressed.  I also would like to publically challenge Mr. Kremer to a debate on FOIL law.  I am not going to spend the $300.00 to get to get an advisory opinion.”

 

Ed Conlin, Beacon Ave., “My wife and I have been here since 2003; Cohoes has come a long way in not tolerating bigotry and nastiness.  The Music Hall has done a good job.  People know what they are coming to see.  If they don’t like the subject matter, then don’t buy a ticket.  I see a lot of disrespect.”

 

Tim Peltier, McDonald Dr., “I have a concern with the water tank.”

 

Mayor Morse, “We just put a bid out to replace them.”

 

At 7:35 PM, Council Member Russell made a MOTION to adjourn.  Seconded by Council Member Smith.  All members voted “AYE”.  The meeting was adjourned.
