Chapel Hill citizens want their government business to be
conducted in the daylight and for Town policies and decisions to
be followed, unless they are changed by open processes.
Policy directions have been changed without open Council debate.
Any agreements between the Town staff and developers about
potential projects should be fully disclosed to the public and
subject to Council action before coming into effect.
Citizen requests for public records or letters of inquiry
about Town business should be answered within a reasonable time.

Council is having more and more work sessions - which are
not videotaped and there is no opportunity for public comment.
They're not supposed to make decisions at work sessions, but
they reach understandings.
