Since our earlier attempt to speak to Mayor Steve Bach about Councilwoman Czelatdko's comments about communication problems, his office has released the following statement to us.
"At no time were any council members removed from any information distribution lists in any of the departments - nor did we receive direction to omit Council member's names from emails.
City Council agreed at a retreat in December that all requests for information from the Executive Branch would go through Council liaison Aimee Cox. This was a decision that the Council made during this retreat.
The Mayor asked to have a meeting with City Council tomorrow to talk openly in a "workshop" setting. His hope is that everyone will talk about concerns and be open about how we can best serve our city as well as work together. He called this meeting with all nine members of City Council to enable everyone to get on the same page and improve communication. Mayor Bach looks forward to a productive meeting tomorrow."
Tonight we will be speaking with Council members Czelatdko, Hente, Herpin and Leigh about their opinions on the matter. We'll have that story for you tonight at 10.
