Kinda limits public input when yuou schedule the meetings in the middle of the day 10 miles NW of Timbuktu....

Yep. Pretty typical of a governmental agency who "really" wants public input, huh?
Reminds me of the National Forest's "Friends of the Forest" program.
They recently announced that they'd be shutting it down for lack of participation.
