Residents asked to be more respectful at Wickenburg Town Council meetings

By Scott Turner | Wickenburg Sun

Wickenburg residents are being asked to be more respectful and professional at Town Council meetings.
Rules for conduct were introduced at the Aug. 2 Council meeting, and were immediately tested with one resident being escorted out of Council chambers.

“I’d like for everyone to come up, speak and give their opinions, but I’d like for you to refrain from attacking individuals,” Mayor Rui Pereira said before the public comment period. “Just be respectful. I will do the same as well. If you start attacking someone, then I’m going to stop you. You’re going to be moved out. You’re going to get kicked out of the meeting … If you start by attacking someone, then I’m going to have you escorted out by one of our police officers.”

Pereira told those attending the meeting they were free to speak to the Council and give their opinions “how you feel, how you don’t agree with us. But be respectful about it. That’s all I ask for.”
