  1. Have Committee assignments been made? If not, I wonder which Councilmembers will form which Committees for the standing Committee Meetings of January 11, 2022?


  2. Why don’t we see any “public safety” topics on the Public Safety, Personnel & Planning meeting agenda? Isn’t public safety the highest responsibility of our city government? Shouldn’t we be talking more about it and make it transparent? Otherwise, how else will we improve? This should be a monthly recurring agenda topic for this committee.

    I have a renewed appreciation for public safety and our police department, having been the victim of a physical assault by a knife carrying individual in December. EPD quickly responded and apprehended my assailant. I got lucky and don’t want anyone else to go through this experience. Expect me to continue to raise awareness and offer suggestions for improvement. I hope others will join me too. After all, it’s OUR city!


    1. Mr. Ogonowski, very sorry that happened to you. We had much the same experience on a personal level when we got to know former Chief Compaan and officers at EPD when we had vandalism issues in our neighborhood and our home was burglarized. I don’t want anyone to have to experience this either. We found them to be extremely professional, helpful, and responsive in our time of need. It certainly enlightens one’s perception.

      Public safety, police and fire services are extremely important issues.
