I like Philip (or is it Chuck's) suggestion. I would much prefer to have these
status updates in advance and plan for shorter Council meetings as a
consequence. It is always my feeling, when listening through these status
updates during our meetings, that the people giving them are Reading from a
written text anyway. If that impression is correct, then surely it would be no
extra trouble to send to text to the Council list ahead of the meeting. I for
one would find it easier to assimilate these status reports if they were sent
as text rather than read aloud. And if that can mean a 1:30 hour long meeting
instead of a 2 hour meeting, all those involved would probably gain.
