I'm not a fan of the Belleville City Council's action to change protocol regarding how public comment is received at local meeting.

The city on Monday eliminated the 'public comments' portion of what has been an agenda item for as long as anyone can remember. Instead people wanting to address the council must sign their name to a list before the council meeting and state why it is they want to talk.
