In what would turn out to be a colossal waste of time for all involved and in attendance, the Milton Ethics board voted 3 to 1 to delay the hearing for Tina D'Aversa until March 2nd.
The reasons are two fold.
First, three of the council have not appointed new ethics board members since some recent resignations. Therefore, only four were in attendance. However, four equals a quorum which would have been enough to move forward.
Second, a new ethics member was evidently not up to task on the information regarding the case at hand. With the above in mind, ethics Chair Clint Johnson made a motion to delay...er, I mean "continuance" until March 2nd and it passed.
This has to be one of the dumbest things I have ever witnessed since the city came to be and I have witnessed quite a few. How hard is it to send an email around to your current ethics board members prior to the meeting, make a decision, and then let City Manager Lagerbloom know to delay it on the calendar? Ever heard of email, people? How about a phone?
Sooo, we are back to square one until March 2nd. Then again, I wouldn't bet on it. We are dealing with Milton...Milton Gump.
