Sometimes it appears a member just talks to be talking. They may be trying to make political points with the public. This is common and nothing wrong with it except it can be boring if it goes too long.Incidentaly. the local media does a good job reporting chit chat around a vote, especially if it's a subject of real interest. This does not need to be in the minutes. The Crestview situation is the culmanation of a long media investigation into a long history of potential Sunshine violations. That is not the case in DeFuniak , but our council needs to be guided accordingly.
