What is the reason for this sudden cancelation? Aren't the meetings dates known years in advance? Are Council Members out of town?

Is there a particular issue they want to avoid?

Nearly 75% of the Town voted for a new baseball stadium in Holbrook Palmer Park.

At this canceled meeting, the Council would have considered implementing the voter's wishes. But, 2 Council Members can't bring themselves to respect the will of the voters.

Rather than approve the new facility, they choose to "call in sick" for this Council Meeting and avoid the issue altogether.

Is this the leadership you expect from your Council?
Will they refuse to meet until a tie-breaker candidate is elected?
Which way will this next Council member lean? WMD (Sandhu) or Lewis-Wiest (Degolia)?

"Let's go out to the ball park"....
