City Council meets later this week with a packed agenda, including the budget and LP&L rates. They're also dealing with the ongoing dispute between Councilman Victor Hernandez and City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld.

Mayor Glen Robertson was on Good Day Lubbock Monday to discuss the issues. Robertson says the council is able to deal with all these issues, and it's a sign of a healthy government.

"This council is so transparent, I think the citizens are seeing what typically goes on with most councils in most cities, that's typically kept in the back room" Robertson said. "It's the hard part of governments. It's when we don't agree. This council does not agree on all issues, which I think is good."

I believe the council will be more transparent, when secret or private "Executive secession" meetings are outlawed. If council members have anything to say that concerns the city, the people should have the right to hear each and every word. I invite the FBI to arrest all municipal officials that secretly collaborate how to extort or spend the taxpayer's funds.
