The Troutdale City Council likes to clear the decks, so to speak, of agenda items so we can take a break in August. It looks like The Dalles City Council also likes to take a summer break. They will be "clearing the deck" of action items by holding four public hearings at their July 23rd meeting, according to an article in The Dalles Chronicle.
Throw in an executive session in between public hearings, and you have one long meeting. And I mean loooooong. If they pull it off, I'll be truly impressed.
