Gainesville City Council comments lead to testy exchange
Placeholder Image
Public comments at the Gainesville City Council meeting led to a testy exchange between a Hispanic community activist and Mayor Danny Dunagan at Tuesday’s meeting. The City Council passed a resolution formally adopting rules about citizen comments at the meeting minutes before Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, spoke. The rules were amended, allowing speakers five minutes each of speaking time and limiting public comments to no more than 20 minutes.
