The Planning & Zoning Commission met via video conference June 10th with a light agenda and a reminder from chair Debbie Saffell regarding social media best practices for committee members.
With no previous or new business to discuss, the Commission considered and approved final plat plans for the Rosewood Hills subdivision.
At the conclusion of the meeting, chair Debbie Saffell read from social media guidelines set for elected officials and reminded members to consider these guidelines before posting committee news and personal opinions on social media.
Saffell explained that the guidelines were set to ensure communications were coordinated with City staff, and that committee members were welcome to share developments announced through proper City channels. Saffell further explained the guidelines expect those serving in elected and appointed positions conduct themselves responsibly as representatives of the City.
“When in doubt, don’t post it,” Saffell said.
Member Scott Shafer indicated he had no intention of backing off of discussing issues related to zoning and sewer issues he has raised related to resident Dale Arnold, and volunteered to step off the board if needed. “I’ll step off the board if I have to, to continue this battle,” Shafer said. Saffell and Shafer agreed to discuss the matter further by phone at the close of the meeting.
The next meeting of the Planning & Zoning Commission will be held July 8th at 6:30pm.
