Dixie Flyover Meeting - at a time no one can make

According to Michael Turnbell of the Sun Sentinel, State officials will talk about the flyover project at a public meeting from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Monday in Deerfield Beach Commission chambers at City Hall, 150 NE Second Ave. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/local/broward/sfl-dixie-highway-flyover-b061009,0,1141955.story

State Officials, huh, I guess they want to make sure they get home in time for dinner so they are having the meeting at the most inconvienent time possible for resident participation.

No one, besides the retired and unemployed is able to attend a meeting at 4:30 in the afternoon. This is a typical politician trick, have a public meeting, crow about how they had a meeting to inform the public, but very few showed up, which, I am sure they will say, means no one is interested. WRONG, many people are interested but are working, tending to kids, or trying to get dinner on the table for their families at that time.

Get real, state official people, have the meeting at 7:00, better yet, have one during the day for the retirees who don't like to drive at night, and another at night for those who still have jobs.

What is up with our commission allowing this meeting at this time, don't some of our commissioners work? Huh? Oh, I mean don't some of them have jobs other than the commission.
