Time to cut some of those meetings

It’s time for Sussex County Council to stop meeting.

Councilman George Cole once said any day the council doesn’t meet is a good day for Sussex County. It’s time for his words to become reality.

Council meets every Tuesday with occasional time off for holidays and vacation periods. In all, there are about 42-44 meetings each year. Do they really need that many meetings?

Over the past few months, a few meetings were almost a waste of time. The May 11 meeting was over in 20 minutes.

No one would complain if council removed one meeting a month from its schedule. With the emphasis on cutting expenses, here is a way to trim some fat.
