The proposal for enabling the raising of the Pride Flag for June prompted a discussion on the viability of such a measure given the developing legal status and the fear it would open the door for other flags that many folks would not approve of. It generally was a rather good civil conversation except for the last commenter. The general consensus was for appointment of an ad-hoc subcommittee to further address the proposal for fute, especially since the current June Pride situation can be worked around satisfactorily
Approval for additional ARPA funding from Norfolk County was received
