J������ 19, 2011 TOWN HALL MEETING & QIA PANCAKE SUPPER WED. JAN. 26TH The Quartzsite Improvement Associa- tion (QIA) hosts their extremely popu- lar Pancake Supper on every Wednes- day night from 5-6pm. After your dinner on January 26th, stick around for a Quartzsite Town Hall Meeting! There is a Town Hall meeting planned for Wed. Jan. 26th at 6:30pm to be held at the QIA. The public is invited to discuss town issues with Quartzsite council members. It is a moderated meeting and ques- tions should be submitted on cards, which will be provided. Arrive early... meeting will start on time. If you ar- rive late, there will be a break to accept more questions on cards. ���.D����� M��������.��� Many complain that the council will not answer questions raised during the Call to the Public during regular council meetings. Although the Open Meeting Law per- mits the public to attend public meet- ings, it does not require public partici- pation in the public body’s discussions and deliberations and does not require a public body to include an open call to the public on the agenda. See Ariz. Att’y Gen. Op. No. I78-001. In the “Town Hall Meeting” format, Quartzsite Council gives the public the opportunity to ask the questions. The council will not be making any deci- sions at this meeting. “They will not be doing any town business”, said Alex Taft, Town Manager. Skip Gallup will be moderating the informal public meeting on Wed. Jan- uary 26th at 6:30pm at the QIA. NO GIMMICKS! Just Great Food! 60 W.

Signatures were gathered, a call for candidates publicized, and of the 6 council members recalled, only 3 are being challenged. Jennifer “Jade” Jones is up against incumbent Bar- bara Cowell. Pat Workman is running against incumbent Patricia Anderson. David Gjerdahl is challenging incum- bent Joe Winslow. Council Members Jose Lizzaraga Bob Kelley, and Jerry Lukkasson are unopposed.
