At least one alderman has taken a stand against what appeared to be grandstanding by Mayor Jimmy Haley during the Oct. 28 Board of Mayor and Alderman meeting.Alderman Mike Neal sent an email message on Oct. 29 to Mayor Jimmy Haley in regard to the “inappropriate” way he conducted the meeting.“I am writing you concerning the procedures you enacted at last night’s meeting which were out of order,” said Neal. “The meeting is to start promptly at 7 p.m. and it is inappropriate for you or any other member of the board to delay the city’s business to make a speech. This was not the proper time for your comments.”The meeting was delayed for several minutes as Haley addressed the Beer Ordinance measure on the agenda for later that night.
