Special Council Meeting, Then The Fun Stuff

Tonight, Friday, September 2, 6 pm at Municipal Hall. SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING to appoint "a resident" to the at-large council seat vacated by Marlon Milner. I'm wondering why Council isn't announcing the name of the resident before the meeting, why they're doing this on the Friday evening of a holiday weekend when the seat has been vacant since August 3, and why they only gave residents one day's notice. If I find out any of these answers, I'll let you know.
