PACAB did not believe the Vigor vacation of the shiplift <br /> facility required another revision to the plan.Terry recognized the contributions made by Ron Long, <br /> Norm Regis, Matt Chase, Jackie Wilde, Stefan Nilsson, Eddie Athey, and John Foutz; she also <br /> thanked the city clerk for providing meeting support, and Latesha Layne for plan documentation. <br /> Carol Griswold wished to address the public document requests. She thought that adding a <br /> new column with a name of the requestor was intimidating and went against the spirit of public <br /> records access. Griswold also thought that the number of records requests made would diminish if <br /> more information was made publically available;she suggested adding more information to the city <br /> website for public access. <br /> Rebekah Ivy had attended some recent meetings,and appreciated that council was bringing <br /> up the discussion to hire a third party consultant tonight. She thanked council for listening to the <br /> employees. <br />
