NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council will hear a report on the city's financial processes on Tuesday night.
A representative from the city's auditor, Scanlon & Associates, will be appear at the meeting to answer any questions regarding the audit and management letter submitted two weeks ago.
The council will also take up, again, the matter of a diagonal parking experiment that has been approved twice by the Traffic Commission and last week by the Public Safety Commission.
Councilor Alan Marden has submitted a request to discuss and reconsider two of the rules of order instituted at the beginning of this council session regarding public input.
Rule 12 limited the visitors to three minutes to address agenda items at the beginning of the meeting; Rule 13 limited them to two minutes to speak on "matters of municipal interest" in open forum at the end of the meeting. The rules also reiterated the council president's authority to silence or remove those not following the rules.
The rules were voted in because of the increasing unruliness of some who were attending the meetings.
