Transparency, finally, on the naming rights of the Events Center

Well, I am glad somebody was finally listening. On Thursday, August 2, I said this about the naming rights process;

So now that the cat is out of the bag, we still have to go into a secret meeting to discuss the contract? This should be an open meeting to the public, not behind closed doors.

Now we hear this;

Earlier this week, the council had proposed an executive session to further review the events center naming rights contract. The work session is being held in place of executive session.

Yup, since we got our way already, we thought it would be okay for the public to see the contract.

I also heard from an attorney today that they had no choice but to make this a public meeting, in accordance with state law.

I guess David Fiddle-Faddle finally pulled his head out and saw the sunshine on this one.
