Public comments steal the show at council

Instead of a fierce debate over rate studies, Brighton’s City Council’s Sept. 17 meeting featured residents who talked goats and the Bible.

Last week, council squabbled over Stantec’s recommendation to lower utilities rates. “Mr. Mayor, do you think we’re all stupid?” Council Matt Johnston sarcastically said.

“You throw mud at the wall and see what sticks,” Mayor Pro Tem Edwards said to Johnston.
