The council make-up will change in December, I would rather hear what Cary Wiest has to say on the issue and see how he votes.
If this decision impacts the future talks, it should be delayed until the council that will be handling those talks is seated.
If the meeting was delayes one more week, Wiest could be sworn in before the meeting.
Good or bad, he is the one responsible for next year's talks. He should be voting on the ground work.
