John and I have had a multitude of City Government related discussions over the past few months, and it usually goes something like this:
JOHN: After protracted debate, motions, seconds, alternative motions, and amended motions, the motion ultimately carried upon removal of the disqualification for litigating against the city.
Because we agree that there are likely a number of Scottsdale citizens who would benefit from some basics regarding our City Government, we decided that a video series was in order. Today’s installment answers the question: Who’s really in charge?
While this citizens-at-the-top organizational structure is John’s community mantra, this admittedly informal drawing was not of his design. You can visit the City’s web site for the official version.
If you have ideas, input, or constructive criticism, please comment below. We’d love to create future videos based on your questions or suggestions. And if we’ve inspired you to join us at the next City Council meeting, you can reach us by email.
