Big bucks will prejudice council


So, let me make sure I have this right: West Linn residents are not allowed access to their city council to voice opposition to the Lake Oswego-Tigard Water Treatment Plant expansion as it might prejudice the council’s opinion on a quasi-judicial matter. But the same city council can enter into negotiations to accept a $5 million lump-sum payment from the LOT partnership.

How can it be that the big bucks dangled in front of the city will not prejudice the council? Does it get any more audacious? Can’t wait to hear the city attorney’s spin on this.
