Norfolk council continues to make amends for its past practice of transacting public business behind closed doors.
In an unusual move, council approved a motion of reconsideration Tuesday so it could review a decision it made in-camera May 24.
The issue in question was Hastings Drive in Long Point and whether council should pursue the development of new cottages on vacant lots there.
At the May 24 meeting, council went behind closed doors, discussed the matter, and then voted to take unbridled development off the table. At Tuesday’s meeting, Mayor Charlie Luke said a crisis of conscience prompted him to seek a motion of reconsideration.
