After facing more heat Tuesday morning, Clark County commissioners relented on their notion to move public testimony to the end of their meetings.
But first the commissioners heard some three hours’ worth of that testimony, most of it critical, again at their regular weekly meeting.
At the end, Commissioner David Madore told the people they have been heard.
“First of all, I apologize for moving the public comment to the end of the meeting last week,” Madore said.
Madore and fellow Republican Commissioner Tom Mielke voted to move the comment period to the end of their May 7 meeting, which resulted in members of the public waiting nearly four hours to speak their piece.
Democratic Commissioner Steve Stuart opposed the move.
“I am reminded we are your servants,” Madore said. “You have my word to you that I will listen. And just lastly, I want to share that I have no intention of ever moving public comment behind any business in the future. I will listen. Thank you for that feedback.”
