"I was so disheartened, Director Huss, when you did not respond to any of the seven invitations," [council member Natalia Rudiak] said after [issuing a subpoena to bring public safety director Mike Huss] to council's table. "It's this total lack of communication that is concerning to me."
Mr. Huss later countered that he was distressed at Ms. Rudiak's public comments about city snow emergency management days after the Feb. 5 storm.
"Councilwoman, I was disappointed on Monday of the event when you stated we failed," he said. "Now, at that moment in time, we had another storm bearing down on us."
Absent a shocking revelation that Miss Rudiak was, like Huss, accompanying Mayor Ravenstahl on a snowbunny hunt at Seven Springs (right) during the first storm, the councilor appears to have been in a better position from which to gauge whether InsolvenCity had provided adequate services during the first storm.
Can anyone explain how the second snowfall could be relevant to the issue of the city's performance with respect to the initial snowfall?
