Re: A Closed Session Meeting Between CD11 Bill Rosendahl and Department of Transportation on OPD ?
Dear Mr. Grant,
As you serve as the special Deputy for Council person Bill Rosendahl, might you please verify a few points that were shared with me by a community members yesterday.
1. She stated she watched on television a meeting which included Mr. Rosendahl and the Department of Transportation. When the issue of OPD’s in Venice came into play, the commissioners and Mr. Rosendahl went into a closed door session. Is this accurate or not accurate? If not accurate, please make the necessary changes to make it correct.
2. Has CD 11 Bill Rosendahl been in closed session(s) with the Department of Transportation regarding OPD’s in Venice? If so, what is his position and might you send a copy of the minutes of the closed meeting or a summary with the results of any votes taken?.
Please be as accurate as possible as this is an emotional issue in Venice.
Peace. Rick Selan
