Similar to CA and the ease at which they can make constitutional ammendments. It creates conflicting issues, and a mess in general.
That's not exactly the type of situation I'd like to see us in.
When it comes to Staff they follow the direction and guidance of council. If there's some policy or ordinance that doesn't make sense, chances are it leads back to some guidance or ordinance that council passed. When it comes to the appointed boards and commissions, they are recommending boards, I can't think of anything, at the moment, that doesn't come back through council at some point, or in some manner for approval.
