The town council appears to be trying to create panic among Quartzsite citizens by holding an unannounced secret meeting, and nobody can get a straight answer.
At 12:00 today, Quartzsite Town Council-members Cowell, Kelley, Lukkasson, Anderson and Winslow held a special, locked door meeting at town hall. In attendance were Town Clerk Karen Norris and (appointed at an illegal meeting) new Town Attorney/Town Prosecutor?Town Parliamentarian Martin Brannan They voted unanimously to take some kind of action. It was reported that from what could be heard through the glass door, they may have possibly declared a state of emergency in Quartzsite, after town officials were deluged by angry emails for several days. When confronted by unnerved citizens, Cowell waffled, Lukkasson denied, and Kelley said he couldn't talk about it. The mayor refused to participate in an "illegal meeting", and was locked out of the building.
One thing's for sure, there's no transparency in Quartzsite government!
