Harsh: If you're not nice, you have to leave

Council member Jeff Harsh has drawn up a proposed flyer setting out a policy for how the public must act in city meetings.His draft flyer states: "Any person making personal, impertinent or slanderous remarks, or becoming boisterous shall be barred by the presiding officer from further attendance at said meeting unless permission for continued attendance is granted by a majority vote of the Council."Iowa law gives local governments the right to establish rules for conducting orderly meetings, and typically, governments follow Robert's Rules of Order to steer discussions.Above that, however, there are laws stating that public meetings must be open to the public.Harsh says that by offering citizens this flyer, "it sets an expectation for everybody."The proposed policy states that if citizens want to speak, they must raise their hands and speak only when given permission.The policy talks about kicking out "any person who interrupts and refuses to keep quiet or take a seat when ordered to do so by the presiding officer or otherwise disrupts the proceedings of the Council."The city council has not yet decided whether to use the flyer, but council members did encourage Harsh to keep working on it.
Harsh told the council that he had looked to the Adel-DeSoto-Minburn School District, among other places, for ideas of how to maintain control.

Harsh and Swanson had cast the negative votes on that issue, too.
At that point, Harsh read his motion to seek a new city administrator, again triggering some discussion.
Harsh quickly said, "I'll answer that."
Harsh voted "no" on a number of appointments and went "on the record" against one appointment the council had no authority to block.When Mayor Jim Peters announced he was appointing former city council member Bob Ockerman to serve in the mayor's place on the emergency management commission, Harsh reacted."For the record, I don't want him serving," Harsh told the mayor.
Harsh voted "no."
