To the Editor:
We attended an Eldora City Council meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 27, concerning a proposed SOP (standard operating procedure) document, and left totally dismayed and appalled. The SOP document’s purpose is to establish behavior/communication standards for the council, mayor and city administrator. To even consider such a document in the face of what happened at that meeting is ironic at best. The SOP workshop itself devolved into a spectacle of the very behavior the SOP would supposedly prevent. And that bad behavior came from the very “leaders” who are pushing its passage.
