What a difference a week makes

Regarding the proposed temporary triage center (if something can be called “proposed” when it’s already a done deal):

Last Tuesday:

No opposition was voiced by the City Council when the plan was announced last night. District 5 Councilor William J. Eddy, in whose district the temporary site will locate, noted City Manager Michael V. O’Brien assured that there will be good supervision and noted its short-term nature.

Last night:

District 5 Councilor William J. Eddy called it “a very poor process” and called the location “a very poor choice.”

But the best part of the meeting:

Finally, after an hour, City Manager Michael V. O’Brien announced that the meeting would have to end because the Fire Department declared that the hallway was overcrowded.
