    Last week with most of Carmel out of town or celebrating the New Year the Mayor crafted a 433 page “packet” released on New Years Eve for Monday nights City Council meeting.

    How long have the worked on this and how is it it received NO oversight or discussion with the “NEW” Council yet THEY ARE SET TO PASS IT MONDAY NIGHT, JANUARY 4th, before most Carmel residents are completely unpacked?

    Here is a link to the “Packet”: http://www.carmel.in.gov/modules/showdocument.aspx?documentid=6627
