Words are importan, and civil civility begins with using the proper words.
The Town Ordinance provides:
" Special meetings may be called at any time by the mayor, or by three members of the city council, or by a petition bearing a minimum of one hundred signatures of adult residents of the town. (Ord. 382, 1980: Ord. 344 Ch. 1(e) § 1, 1976)"
This is the proper terminology - rather than 'forcing- the Town Council to do something.
