The Fire Dept., Redux

Last night, Commissioner Meursing accused Commissioner Wilmot of "sneaking an American flag into the Firehall," and of "refusing to play ball," which is "what Commissioners do," when Commissioner Wilmot disagreed with him.  Almost all agenda items were tabled because of one of those disagreements.  Commissioner Riffle, attending via telephone for the second month in a row (this time pretty much in communication, as opposed to last month when the telephone line worked only off and on), made occasional comments.

The District's Insurance Rep was attending and got to witness what government in Point Roberts is at its worst.  One can only wonder what he said to his colleagues this morning.  The Public Comment period, at the end, was abruptly ended when Commissioner Meursing announced he was adjourning the meeting and Commissioner Wilmot noted that there were people who had requested to be heard.  It was adjourned.  A good time was not, as far as I could tell, had by anybody.
