Note there is no public input item. 

This appears to be a major purchase and the public is not allowed to voice opinion on this.  Certainly this was in the works at the time of the regular meeting so why the special meeting.  The taxpaying public should have an opportunity to speak on this issue and ask the council questions.  Come to the meeting, contact your ward council person and let them know how you feel!
