A constituent's remarks at the Cedaredge Town Board meeting on Sept. 20 were judged by the mayor to be straying from the topic and the speaker, former trustee Nelson Cederberg, was asked to stop speaking.
Cederberg was reading from a prepared statement on the topic of historic preservation efforts.
But when he linked the topic to the problem of weeds and the town's appearance, Mayor Pat Means asked him to stop speaking, saying he had gone off topic and cited the need to conserve meeting time.
Cederberg replied that he would bring the topic of his remarks back to historic preservation, which his prepared text did do. He was about to volunteer to serve on a town beautification committee when he stopped his remarks.
Cederberg and his wife were the only citizens at the town board meeting not there to transact some business matter with the trustees. They both left soon after his remarks.blog comments powered by Disqus
