Last night's the Highland City Council Meeting was cancelled, because, get this: there was no city business to be done.
No business for the Highland City Council.
A crowd of mobile home owners who are asking the Council to consider adopting a Mobile Home Rent Stabilization Ordinance (as other cities in the county have done) showed up only to find the meeting cancellation notice on the door. Current Mayor Penny Lilburn who recently lamented the "division" on the Council in a speech at a Republican Women's luncheon, has, in no uncertain terms, wished the residents luck with their pursuit but stated that Rent Stabilization "aka rent control" is not an issue that the Council will address. She solved that problem.
No planning for the future needed to happen.
No city employees needed to report on anything nor be recognized for their good work.
The most pressing issues that neighbors are concerned about including homelessness, infrastructure, housing affordability, long-term fiscal viability, partnerships with education, senior services, activities calendar, and more?
In the same speech mentioned above, Mayor Lilburn said that it can cost the City of Highland $10,000 to break up a homeless encampment. No mention of whether any of those homeless folks were previously priced out of their mobile homes.
Sounds like paradise.
