The public now has permission to address the state Transportation Commission at its monthly board meetings.
After months of arguing, the Transportation Commission voted 6-0 to add a public comment section to its meeting agenda. Commissioners who had opposed adding public comment to the agenda relented, saying they were tired of the fighting.
Commission member Sarah Nuckles, who pushed to add a public comment period at each meeting, said she was glad fellow board members supported her push to give the public greater access to the public commission.
Its a lot better than what we had, Nuckles said. I just dont know why this was such a big deal.
The commissions vote allows up to 10 speakers at each public meeting.
