presstalk 671-TALK


• I note in your paper that the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen is not required to publish its agenda earlier than the day of the meeting. All I’ve got to say is that is ridiculous and avoids transparency. The Board, the mayor and aldermen, ought to publish their agenda in the paper at least a week ahead of time and they should put it on their website at least five days ahead of time. I noted that they complained that no one comes to the meetings to voice their opinion. Well, how are they going to know about what they should do, how they should get there and why they should get there if they don’t publish the agenda? I think it’s ridiculous.

• Via e-mail: In last week’s ’press there was an announcement of free Income Tax assistance for the handicapped and elderly. The dates of this service were included and the times are to be announced. It also indicated service would be available without appointment on a first come basis. This is a wonderful service and very much appreciated. I suggest, however, that an appointment schedule be established. Many of us have handicaps that would prevent standing in line or waiting for long periods of time. An appointment schedule also would allow for more efficient use of the volunteers’ time. Preventing crowds at one time and no one waiting at other times. When the times are announced a phone number for making appointments needs to be published.
