At the Hurley Town Council Meeting many residents appeared before the council with a variety of concerns. During the Public Input session Mayor Ed Stevens reported that there will be another work session meeting about Animal Ordinance issues. The date will be announced later. A question was asked by an audience member about public input before the council votes on approval or disapproval of agenda items. Mayor Stevens said he would look into that and report back. Normally public input is about citizen concerns that will be followed up on by the council at a later date, not for debating agenda items.
