May 4 Hackensack City Council Meeting - estimate of 200 in attendance
There was a lot of video to process. I hope I got all the parts. If I missed anything, please let me know. I apologize that some is out of order. I did my best to break it down into small segments and identify them.
Part I - beginning of meeting
LoIacono "explains" - note he says we had a choice about monitor- accept the help or fight it. Doesn't seem like much of a choice ...
"Public Hearing" issue
"You'll have to sue us"
this is out of order - should be before response (above) - sorry got distracted
this one ends with only a "Thank you" (a disingenuous one at that)
Taking on debt
and more debt
Beginning of public comments and the "fun". One person (near the end of this @ about 7:15) makes an obscene gesture to the citizens of Hackensack
the rest is more public comments. It's still a work in progress. More to be added as it is available
this part of the video has technical problem - will re-post when resolved - after the first one video is OK
at the end of this a "membership" card was revoked
COW (work session) May 4, 2010
This is the meeting that is supposed to start @6:30 before the Council meeting. But on this night the Council met behind closed doors until 7:15 without announcing that they would be in closed session. Then after this short meeting they went back into closed session. Check out the list of litigation cases read off at the end of the second part of this.
New Officer Oaths & Promotions up next - need to take a break from posting
I have 2 more clips to post, but one has technical issues to be worked out.
5th clip @ 3:30 is when fireworks break out
This is part I of the 3rd Ward town hall meeting. The second part will be posted shortly.
The second video below is the part with the "yellow sheets of flame"
I apologize for the sound. Not everyone had a microphone.
