LURA under attack

I hope more Laurel residents will watch the Laurel City Council meetings made available through Facebook Live on the Laurel Outlook’s Facebook page. Although most of the meetings are uneventful, there are movements afoot to limit citizen input that everyone should be aware of. The meetings are Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m.

At the last workshop meeting, July 16, Council President Emelie Eaton requested a discussion item for the July 30th meeting. She said that in light of Steve Solberg’s resignation from the Laurel Urban Revitalization Agency board, she thinks the council should consider dissolving the board.

Most of the folks on the LURA board have dedicated themselves to the betterment of Laurel for many years and their investment in our community should not be tossed away. Maybe the council should try working with city boards and councils first.
