Entrance to the sacred grounds of the Green Room is limited to council members, city staff and “invited guests.”
It’s understandable that council members may need a place to take a break during council meetings or take a cell phone call, but it’s the “invited guests” that are the problem.
A recent example: Port officials were yukking it up in the Green Room with council members who will decide whether to allow the port to build a cruise ship terminal at Mayport.
Those opposed are left on the outside looking in.
Fussell can fix the problem by limiting the Green Room to council members and staff.
