Regular attendees at public meetings occasionally hear someone stand and say something like, “When did this happen? What’s going on? I never heard anything about this.” Never mind that the elected officials, whether they be planning group or school board members, have been discussing the issue for awhile — sometimes years — and it’s been reported in the media, discussed around town, been the subject of letters to the editor and website blogs — and in some cases the information’s been mailed to all residents, property owners, voters or parents.
