Agenda item 12 is yet another opportunity for this community to partially begin to make up for past horrific and egregious acts committed by Eureka’s earliest Anglo residents.
One year ago the Mayor and the City Council went along with the incompetent legal advice of the City Attorney; either as an excuse or because they were just as ignorant, and refused to apologize to the Wiyot People.
So here we are a year later and we have a couple of new Council Members. Will they seize this opportunity to do the right thing? Setting up an ad hoc committee could be the first step in the right direction or this Council could really step up and just direct the City Manger to make it happen.
We will be paying close attention to this.
