Note to citizens: the Chattanooga City Council will listen to you only twice in a 30-day period during its open meeting time.
Chattanooga resident Troy Cox found that out the hard way when he came to the City Council meeting for a third consecutive week to ask about the Ashland Terrace road widening project. He didnt get very far into his questions before getting cut off.
Were hearing you say the same thing over and over, said Councilman Leamon Pierce, who asked the city attorney to cite the 1993 statute prohibiting citizens from appearing more than twice in a 30-day period.
Mr. Cox has been upset with the city for diverting money from the Ashland Terrace project and pushing it back by two more years. City officials have said they are trying to find money to put the work back on this years schedule.
Clearly frustrated, Mr. Cox said he would return in 30 days.
